Volunteers received a Christmas visit from an X Factor champs, Rak Su.

The Christmas House in Lancing way, Croxley Green has raised money every year for different charities and this is the 40th year that Dave Edwards, Mr Christmas, has been doing this.

Last year Dave’s wife Carol passed away.

But Dave was eager to continue the tradition he and his wife started.

X factor winners Rak-Su had heard about the Christmas House so their manager got in contact with Dave’s daughter Sharon Markham and arranged a surprise visit for all the volunteers of the house.

The house has been hosting a number of events this year; a light switch on in November, choir night, princess night and Grotto night.
