Ipswich Halloween Celebration Set to Help Children Worldwide

A Halloween fundraiser in Ipswich is set to help children caught up in emergencies worldwide.

No. 16 Tackett Street, one of Ipswich’s newest bars, will be the venue for a Halloween Night in aid of Save the Children on Saturday 29th October (8pm till late). Entry is free. Donations will be gratefully received in aid of the Children’s Emergency Fund. Prizes will be awarded for best male costume and best female costume. There will be a ‘name the Halloween cocktail’ competition and a raffle.

The event will provide Halloween revellers with the opportunity to help a good cause. Save the Children is warning that the number of children now at risk in Thailand’s flood crisis has risen sharply to an estimated 800,000. More than 60 million children are caught up in emergencies every year, by having the funds already in place before emergencies hit, Save the Children can respond quicker to emergencies all over the world – therefore saving more lives.

The Halloween Night will also mark the beginning of a recruitment drive for Children’s Emergency Fund Volunteers in Suffolk. The Volunteer Emergency Fundraising Team in Suffolk is hoping to recruit volunteers who can contribute a few hours on a one off basis and those who can make a longer term commitment. For more information about volunteering please email C.horan@savethechildren.org.uk.
