Carlisle Lake District Airport will be the host of a Halloween family fun-day to raise money for children’s charity Jigsaw on October 31. The late afternoon event, hosted in the airport’s Ivor Broadis Lounge, will include ghostly party games and spooky treats.
The airport is also putting on a fancy-dress and pumpkin carving competition. Would-be contestants are being urged to bring their already-carved pumpkins to the airport and they could win a VIP tour of the airport, including a trip down the runway in a fire engine.
Kate Willard, Director of Partnership Development at Stobart Group, said: “We are really looking forward to our Halloween family fun-day and it would be fantastic if parents and their children from across Cumbria could join us on October 31 for what is going to be a spine-chilling afternoon of games and spooky treats. It is all for a great cause as we raise money for Jigsaw, so bring your best pumpkin and fancy-dress costumes with you to Carlisle Lake District Airport.”
A spokesperson from Jigsaw said: “We are thrilled that Carlisle Lake District Airport is hosting this spectacularly spooky event in aid of Jigsaw, Cumbria’s Children’s Hospice. Some of our families will actually be attending the event and we are so excited for that is in store! The money raised at the event will go directly to care for young people in our community. Thank you!”
