It was a spooky success for organisers of Sutton’s Halloween house as £300 was raised for the village scout hut.
Hundreds visited the spooktacular home at Mepal Road on Thursday, October 31 which is organised by three local scout volunteers.
Ben Penfold, one of three organisers, said: "It [the event] was just so busy, we didn't actually know so many people lived in Sutton.
"The night raised a total of £292 but we have rounded it up to £300 ourselves for the scout hut fund, it really was an amazing night."
More than 200 hot chocolates were sold, 150 items from the BBQ were consumed and over 3kg of marshmallows were used on the fire.
Penfold added: "We do it [the Halloween house] just for a bit of fun, for a laugh because we just like making people smile.
"This is our third year of doing it and this year was by far the biggest event to date; there must have been between four and 500 people at the house."
