Christmas lights is our way to thank air ambulance

Gazette: Mariea Johnson and Kevin Johnson Mariea Johnson and Kevin Johnson

A COUPLE have gone Christmas crazy to raise cash for the air ambulance which saved a teenager’s life.

Mariea and Kevin Johnson’s house in Parker Way, Halstead, is the neighbourhood’s star attraction.

Mrs Johnson’s son Hadyn Vaughan-Peacock suffered a massive bleed on the brain following a fall from his bike at the Ramsey Road skate park in August.

The Ramsey School pupil, who is 14, was airlifted to Addenbrookes Hospital, in Cambridge, for an emergency three-hour operation.

He has since been recovering and is now able to attend full days at school.

Mrs Johnson said: “The reaction to our lights has been absolutely fantastic.

“Loads of people have been coming down at the weekend to see them.

“It’s normally a quiet street but lots of people have been driving past to have a look.

“As you turn into Parker Way, you see this glow and it’s us.”

The Johnson’s will be splitting the cash they raise between the Essex Air Ambulance and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.

They have been giving people baubles to sign and hang on their tree and in return have asking for a donation.

So far, the Johnsons believe they may have raised about £200 in just a week.
