Spooktacular Halloween raises over £600 for local charities

On Friday 30th and Saturday 31st October Carrol and Jon from “All Season with Carrol” ladies underwear and bespoke bra fitting service presented a spooktacular scarefest exhibition in the Middleton Shopping Centre.

The scarefest was organised to support the local community and avoid children’s disappointment in not being able to trick or treat due to the ongoing COVID restrictions. The spooky walk through was free although donations to Oldham cats home or knitted knockers UK for breast cancer were warmly welcomed.

Jon from “All Season with Carrol” created a walkthrough Halloween masterpiece with his collection of American animatronics which included creepy sound effects, spooky skeletons, scary spiders, crazy clowns and heaps of other terrifying characters! People were encouraged to dress up for Halloween and warned that they may get a scare!

Marie Gribben, centre manager, was thrilled with the effort made by Jon and Carrol and said “this was a great way of showcasing Halloween to our shoppers and local community and Jon & Carroll’s efforts are truly appreciated. With the current COVID situation and trick or treating on hold this year, it was wonderful to see that we could still provide some spooky Halloween fun!”

Over the two days there were over 2000 visitors.  A total of £251.57 was raised for Oldham Cats Home and £397.34 for Knitted Knockers UK for breast care. A massive thanks to everyone involved for their support.
