100 houses in Rothwell took part in the window trail

"As always, none of this would have been possible without all the volunteers taking part, they all do an amazing job, and also our generous town taking part in our event."

Rothwell Citizens Welfare Charity raises money to support local people like providing vouchers for elderly people at Christmas, organising the carnival, fete, parties and more.

The Rothwell's Windows trail will be back at Christmas. Rachel said: "We are looking forward to our Christmas windows trail event that runs from December 1 to 25.

"Again we will be raising funds for Rothwell Citizens Welfare Charity and asking for donations in exchange for a map. We hope this event lights up Rothwell this Christmas."

Rothwell will have its next window display trail at Christmas

The window events are perfect for current coronavirus restrictions, as families were able to enjoy the Halloween displays while outside and socially-distancing from others.
