The Hospice of the Good Shepherd is holding its first Halloween event in association with Chester Racecourse on Sunday, October 30 from 5-7 30pm.
The Spook Walk is taking place at Chester Racecourse and participants will enjoy trick or treats, pumpkin carving, walking through gunge stations and many other ghostly surprises.
There will be two walks, one for under 10s and families who prefer a less scary walk which starts at 5pm and the second walk is for children aged over 10 and their families for a spookier walk starting at 6.30pm. Entry costs £7.50 per person and is suitable for all ages.
Shirley Joyce and her eight-year-old daughter Keri have already signed up and are preparing to take part by planning their scary outfits for the occasion.
Shirley’s husband Dave passed away in May 2015 and during his illness he was cared for by the hospice.
Shirley said: “The hospice have been a wonderful support, they were there for my husband when he needed them and after he passed away they were still there for me and Keri – they don’t just leave you, the support is there for us as long as we need it.
“We are looking forward to the Spook Walk and thinks it’s a fabulous way to raise money for the hospice whilst having fun at the same time.’
If you would like to sign up for this event please contact the events team at the hospice on 01244 851811 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or you can sign up at Chester Racecourse on the day from 4.45–6pm.
