The Thorold Road property is traditionally decorated at Halloween, but this year the owners went to town, upped the publicity, and decided to collect for Together for Short Lives – “a leading UK charity for children with life-threatening & life-limiting conditions”.

Organiser Liam Arscott described the evening as "brilliant".

“It took us two days to set up and a month to prepare. Can’t believe how busy it was this year – we almost ran out of sweets!”
