A spooky Halloween event in Ely helped to raised £150 for the Liam Fairhurst Foundation.
Colleagues at Sainsbury’s, in Lisle Lane, held various activities at the front of the store last Thursday afternoon for children, to celebrate Halloween.
Customers got involved in a scary scavenger hunt around the store, as well as a lucky dip, name the spooky spider, and guess how many sweets game.
Children were also able to have their faces painted, thanks to Clare Rees from Making Faces, who kindly donated 10 per cent of her profits on the day, to the stores local charity partner.
Staff at the store spent the day in costumes, varying from a wicked witch to a giant banana.
