SPOOKY witches and ghosts took over an Exmouth supermarket.
Tesco, in Salterton Road, held a Halloween-themed event last Saturday, October 30, in aid of Clic Sargeant. The final figure raised for the cancer charity was £890.
Customers were given a fiendish welcome as they entered the store as staff had decorated part of the foyer area in a creepy style.
Children were able to play games including a trick or treat lucky dip, a raffle was held and youngsters could also have their faces painted.
Lisa Hammond, services manager, said the day was a great success. “The customers all had smiles on their faces as they came into the store and noticed what was going on. The children loved it.”
Local brownies and cub groups as well as the Royal Marines, who provided a mesh net, all helped with the spooky decorations.
Pam Mcgoun, Exmouth Tesco’s new community champion, said: “This was my first event as community champion and it could not have gone any better.
“I would like to thank everybody for their support in putting it together.”
