The Fire Fighters Charity received a fangtastic boost thanks to Heywood’s Halloween Spooktacular.
On Wednesday, December 3, Red Watch Heywood presented The Fire Fighters Charity with a cheque for £1064.92.
Back in October Heywood Firefighters turned into ghosts and ghouls to host the second Halloween Spooktacular.
Building on the success of the previous year’s event the station was transformed into a haunted basement, a ghost ridden engine house and a hive of scary activity.
Children travelled to the station dressed in Halloween costumes with their faces painted to watch a magic show and a spooky storyteller.
Many also brought elaborately carved pumpkins to enter a Best Design competition.
Accepting the cheque on behalf of The Firefighters Charity, Regional Fundraising Officer for the Northwest, Alan Knell, said: “It’s a pleasure to accept this donation – thanks to Heywood Firefighters for all their hard work in putting on the event and also to the local community for their support. Their contributions provide very important funds for the charity.”
