A GRANDFATHER has lit up his house once again in memory of his great granddaughter who died suddenly.

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

Alesha Vincent passed away in September 2017 at the age just ten months old, mitochondrial disease caused her heart failure.

Now, for the third year, Alesha's great grandad, Mike Wood, has lit up his house once again to raise money for the charity that cared for her.

The 72-year-old said: "I have been doing it for six or eight years now generally.

"It is hard work to do, this year it took around three weeks to put it up - every day I am going outside to pick things up because of the windy weather."

Mike says there are around 1,000 in his garden.

He has an aeroplane lit up this year, last year he had a fairy carriage and the year before a Coca Cola truck.

Alesha's mum, Beckie Vincent said: "For many years they have been decorating their home each year getting bigger and better.

"This is now the 3rd year they are decorating in memory of my daughter."

Beckie said the charity, who cares for children with life-limiting condition, was "truly amazing".

The 27-year-old added: "Naomi house were truly amazing from the minute we were introduced to them, the care and support they give is just outstanding.

"They are so understanding and so thoughtful in every way.

"Even to this day now they are still always remembering Alesha and supporting us.

"To have them help us through such a devastating unexpected time means so much to us and something we will always be thankful for."

The house is located at 13 Hunters Crescent, Romsey if you are interested in seeing the spectacular display.

This comes as earlier in the year, Romsey Abbey clocktower was lit green in memory of two babies, Ellie Mae Muir and Alesha.
