Halloween fun helps raise vital funds for Reuben's Retreat

A series of fun-filled and Halloween-themed events in Glossop's Howard Park, which kept lots of local schoolchildren entertained over half term, have raised a spook-tacular £580 for Reuben's Retreat. 

The charity organised some spooky fun for all the family to enjoy during the recent holiday period, where people could look for spooky signs which revealed a secret word in a creepy crawl and complete a scavenger hunt by paying just £5 to be in with a chance of winning some terrific treats. 

There was also a creepy costume competition and some families also enjoyed a wheelie scary ramble over the Halloween weekend. 

The events, which followed government Covid-19 guidelines, certainly went down well with youngsters. 

It also raised a fantastic amount for Reuben's Retreat, which supports families bereaved of a child and families of children with a life limiting and life threatening illness. 

The charity said: "Thank you to everyone who took part in our spooky goings on for Halloween. It helped us raise vital funds for our wonderful cause. All of our activities were socially distanced and safe and each gave families the chance to create treasured memories and magic moments together, something that is very important to us here at Reuben's.

"Special thanks to Asda Ashton, Morrisons Dukinfield & Bill Westhead for their help in creating these fun activities for all to enjoy."
