Hallowe’en party at the Mayhew Animal Home is a spook-tacular success

Event raised more than �500 for Kensal Green animal charity

A children’s Hallowe’en party hosted by a Kensal Green animal charity has raised more than �500 for their cause.

The Mayhew Animal Home in Trenmar Gardens, held the spook-tacular event yesterday (Sunday) to raise funds and introduce the public to all the beautiful black cats in their care.

The party was a fantastic success with lots of people turning up to take part in the many games and activities planned for the afternoon.

There were a variety of ghoulish games for the children to take part in, including Find the spider in the zombie brains, Do you dare guess what’s inside the box and ‘Guess how many eyeballs in the jar’

The youngsters also got to enjoy a range of appropriate themed refreshments including eyeball jelly and some particularly creepy cakes.

In addition they took part in a ‘Horror Mask’ competition and fancy dress contest which was judged by Cllr Belinda Donovan, the Mayor of Hammersmith and Fulham and long-term supporter of the charity.
