THE name of a Romsey baby who suddenly died is up in lights this year.

Ten-month-old Alesha Vincent spent her final months in the care at Naomi House and Jacksplace and passed away due to heart failure.

As previously reported, last year her great grandfather covered his house in thousands of Christmas lights in memory of his great granddaughter and raised more than £1,000 in support of the charity that cared for her.

But now he has decorated his house once again and is determined to raise more money.

Alesha’s mum, Beckie Vincent, said she hopes this will become a regular initiative.

She added: “I’ve always said I’ll will always raise money for Naomi House in any way I can and this is a nice way to raise money in memory of her.”

The 26-year-old carer said new for this year are two memory trees where people can add their loved ones’ names to the baubles.

“This year I was thinking what else I could do and I thought of the memory trees. I know Christmas is a hard time for those who have lost their loved ones and I thought that the memory trees were a really lovely idea,”she added.

Beckie’s grandad Mike Wood, started putting the decorations up in October.

His house on Hunters Crescent, Romsey, has more than 70 different sets of lights, with some as long as ten metres.

He said: “It takes so long and the weather has been against us this year but it’s all finished now and we are beginning to get some collections. It started off as a few decorations and it has grown and grown and people expect it. When the little one passed away last year we decided to fundraise for Naomi House. They were so supportive.”

Mike, 71, said people from Romsey and Southampton have been visiting him to admire the display and donate for the charity.

“Everybody around here have supported us. Everybody looks forward to it so now I have to keep it going,”he added.

A spokesperson for Naomi House said: "Mike really has created a spectacular Christmas display and we are hugely grateful to him and the whole family for their ongoing support. As Mike knows, Christmas is a very special time at the hospices and he has helped us to provide care to scores of families this Christmas time.”
