A Harrogate man known for his extravagant garden displays has unveiled over 600 toys as he fundraises for charity.

64-year-old Paul Ivison, a disabled armed forces veteran, is selling the donated toys to raise money for Harrogate Easier Living Project and Andy's Man Club.

His display includes action figures, cars and dinosaurs and can be found on Mayfield Terrace.

The toys were donated following a social media appeal, and Paul hopes to sell them to visitors. 

Paul said:

"I relied on Harrogate Easier Living Project heavily during Covid, while Andy's Man Club is really important to me because I want the garden to encourage people to talk about men's mental health.”

Paul said his display has taken around four months to prepare and is based around the theme of ‘Pride.’

He hopes to raise £300 for each charity.

The garden is open from 10am until 9pm and includes water displays, lighting displays and over 200 dinosaurs.
