GREAT SIGHT: Pam and Tony Sandeman with Danny DeLongville at his Edzell Court home and the magnificent Christmas lights to attract donations for the Cancer group.

Danny DeLongville of Edzell Court and the Hot Spot in the Victor Harbor Central Shopping Centre has a great display of Christmas decorations. There are many homes on the Fleurieu Peninsula getting into the Christmas spirit, but Danny's home has a special and giving touch.

Danny has his front yard lit up like the proverbial Christmas tree. Lights, inflatable decorations, the manger theme and reindeers are all on show and at night it is a sight to behold.

But Danny also has a Wishing Well in his front yard where people can donate money where 100 per cent of the proceeds will go to the not-for-profit Fleurieu Cancer Support Foundation.

"The foundation receives no government support and is well known on how it gives fantastic support to cancer sufferers in our community," Danny said.

"They help people in their hour of need and I just wanted to support them in some way. We have a Wishing Well here at Edzell and collection tins at Hot Spot.

"Customers at the Hot Spot have needed the support of the foundation and this has motivated me massively to do something like this."

Tony and Pam Sandeman from the Fleurieu Cancer Support Foundation said it was "truly valuable" what Danny and the community do for the foundation.

"It is fabulous and we thank Danny and the community so much, as we cannot operate without community donations," Pam said.

"We understand first hand the work of the Fleurieu Cancer Support Foundation, as they were so supportive when Tony went through prostate cancer."
