A DOG daycare service in Flintshire raised hundreds of pounds for charity by hosting a spooky event.

Doggy Playtime Foundation in Mold, which recently hosted a successful Macmillan Coffee morning, decided to once again support the charity by offering a Halloween party for the community.

The event, which was held at Doggy Playtime's base at Lake Offa in Mold on October 31, allowed children to enjoy the grounds and woodland trail filled with spooky props, a disco and more.

A competition for the best costume was held, as well as a raffle.

Organiser Guy J Carter told the Leader: "Residents and friends of the community also came together to help with the event, providing equipment, prizes, serving, DJing and ensuring a safety for the children who attended.

"The night turned a success and [was] enjoyed by many.

"We raised £382.57 which Doggy Playtime Foundation matched, doubling the donation to £765.14."

Mr Carter also said he is planning a three-day Christmas fundraising event which will be in aid of local charities.

The event, which will feature a festive grotto, reindeers, stalls and more, will be held from December 13 to 15.

Further details of the December event will be made available in the near future.
