THE Dame Vera Lynn Trust for children with cerebral palsy took fundraising to a new level with a frightfully fantastic charity halloween run at Cowdray Park.

As participants waited for the family 1.5k run and the adult 5k run, they were able to get up close and personal with owls brought along to the event, compliments of Owls Out and About. And as darkness fell, the ruins lit up, setting an incredible backdrop for the night run.

Events fundraiser Catherine Bristow said: “It was a spooktacular sight and everyone had a ghoulishly good time. This event has raised nearly £5,000 so far and we could not be more thrilled, or should I say, ‘thrillered’.

“Feedback has been fantastic and everyone who took part were such good sports. Judging the best fancy dress competition became quite a challenge as there were some amazing outfits.”
