The party attracted more than 600 people, mostly families with children, with many dressed as Dracula, skeletons, devils or witches. Entertainment was provided by DJ Mike, who donated his time for free, while some party-goers tucked into food served by the venue or took part in fun-filled games including face-painting.

Wild Duck owner Emma Elmaz said: “We have been organising this event for seven years now and every year it gets better. The first year we held it, we only had expats coming but now that everyone else is used to the occasion we have many others, including locals and Russian people coming along to enjoy Halloween.”

The NCCCT thanked Mrs Elmaz and DJ Mike for caring about the charity and inviting them to be part of it.

NCCCT chairman Wendy Anderson said: “Our heartfelt thanks go to everyone for their donations to. . . help the local hospitals to help us all.

“We were asked if there would be a prize for the ‘spookiest’ costume but our thoughts were that everyone was special and a winner!

“Next year, if we are invited back, we will have a ‘Spooky Monster Parade’.”
