Trinity Drive lights up our lives

Matika Hughes loves living in Trinity Drive – especially at Christmas.

Every year her street becomes the toast of the town as it lights up the night sky with a truly magnificent display of Christmas lights to raise money for the Life Saver Rescue Helicopter.

“The lights are awesome, really gorgeous,” Matika said. “Our street’s really safe and everyone looks out for each other. We all walk up and down the street when people come to look at the lights and we all say Merry Christmas and it’s really nice.”

The annual Trinity Drive Christmas Lights Spectacular started with a few coloured milk bottles on people’s curbs in 1995 and today is a breathtaking spectacle (one house boasts 10,000 lights alone!) that attracts hundreds of families each year. Since it began, it has raised around $100,000 for the Rescue Helicopter.

From this Sunday, December 13 until Christmas eve, Trinity Drive will be lit up from 7.45 to 9.45pm every night. Santa will be there giving out lollies and people are asked to give a gold coin donation to his helpers.
