St Clair: Benaud Street has a beautiful story behind it: a wonderful lady named Mona puts on a Christmas lights display every Christmas with her husband and family, attracting people from all over Sydney. Despite learning she had cancer and undergoing chemotherapy in 2016, she spent months preparing the Christmas display to bring joy to children and to keep the spirit of Christmas alive.
