Torbay residents enjoy spooky Halloween celebrations

2 November 2015

A terror-ific time was had by Torbay residents at a monster mash this Halloween.

Spook-tacular parties

Community centres in Foxhole and Great Parks teamed up with Sanctuary Housing to offer local families the chance to come along to parties, encouraging safe celebrations for residents throughout the community, where they could enjoy games, food and fancy-dress.

All ages

Foxhole Community Centre’s Andy Shepherd said: “Residents of all ages had a great time at the party and there were some very scary fancy-dress costumes! Sanctuary’s support has meant we have been able to put on a very successful event for the whole community.”

Kath Sowden from Great Parks Community Centre added: “We are really grateful to Sanctuary for their funding award, this is the third year we have held a Halloween event and it always goes down really well with local residents.”

Sanctuary’s head of local partnerships Alison Kenny commented: “It’s great that we have been able to team up with community centres across the Bay and offer a positive environment for our residents to celebrate the scary season.

“They are real community-led events that we are always keen to support.”

These events were part-funded by Sanctuary Group’s Community Investment Fund, supporting projects which benefit Sanctuary residents and their communities.
