CHILDREN enjoyed a thrilling Halloween party, thanks to a Sale-based charity with help from a local business.

Everyone Can, which enables youngsters with a variety of disabilities to take part in gaming sessions, organised the fun event at its premises in School Road.

Staff and children got into the Halloween spirit and donned fancy dress costumes.

Thirty seven children attended and they watched the spooky animated film Hotel Transylvania, before enjoying pizza, taking part in the regular Wednesday gaming session and leaving with a Trick or Treat goodie bag.

The party was supported by the O2 store in The Square Shopping Centre, which is owned by MID Communications, the largest independent franchise of O2 in the Northwest.

Everyone Can organises regular free gaming sessions for disabled children and their families, who would otherwise not be able to take part.

The charity uses the latest gaming equipment, selected for its ability to be adapted for a range of disability types to help increase their independence, whilst not compromising on fun.

Nikki Jones, the charity’s community engagement and fundraising officer, said: “Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

“The parents were so pleased we organised the event, as their children are not able to go trick or treating like other kids. Usually they miss out on Halloween fun, so we decided to organise something special for them on Halloween.

“We are so grateful to MID Communications for their continued support.

“Their help has enabled this party to be free for the parents and their children.”

Emma Watson, store leader at O2 Sale, said: “We are delighted to support Everyone Can.

“It is a fantastic charity and it is lovely that the children had such a great party.”
