A CAMPSITE is holding a series of spooky fundraising events as the final flourish to its campaign to help keep an air ambulance flying.

Hooton Lodge Farm at Kilnhurst is hosting a Hallowe’en weekend from today until Sunday, including pumpkin picking, a spooky woodland walk, kids’ discos, a Monster Mash disco and a fun fair.

The following weekend, they will mark Bonfire Night with a firework extravaganza on Saturday, November 5, with live music, funfair rides, kids’ and adults’ firework displays and plenty of food and drink stalls.

Charlotte Buck, who runs Hooton Lodge with partner Charlie Schofield, said the events aimed to boost an already-bumper total for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity, with high hopes of reaching their target.

“We have pledged to raise £15,000 by the end of the season and hopefully we will smash that,” she said.

“The air ambulance came out years ago to rescue Charlie and last year they were here for another incident, so there’s good reason to support them.

“We also think it’s just a really great charity.”

Laura Lawton, regional fundraiser for the YAA charity, said community support was vital.

“It is the lifeblood of the charity — we would not be able to do what we do without members of the public and big groups fundraising like this, so we are extremely grateful.”
