Spooky goings on at Ely florists this halloween

ELY florist Mark Smith will be getting into the ghoulish spirit this Halloween by turning up to work as Dracula for the day.

Mark, who has been working at Simply Flowers, in Market Street, for seven years will be serving customers and making his deliveries in full costume, complete with cape, make-up and fangs.

He will be taking donations from customers on the day, October 31, and has also set up a JustGiving page, with all money raised donated to the Wood Green Animal Shelter in Godmanchester.

Mark, who has four dogs of his own, said: “It’s a bit of fun and a really worthwhile cause so I’m looking forward to it.

“I believe in the good work that Wood Green Animal Shelters do, all animals deserve to be loved.”

Visit Mark’s JustGiving page at www.justgiving.com/Mark-as-Dracula or visit the shop to make a donation.
