Missenden Abbey holding charity Pumpkin Carve Spooktacular


Date: 16th Oct 2017

Missenden Abbey is getting into the spirit of Halloween with a Pumpkin Carve Spooktacular on Friday 27 October in aid of The Thomas Ball Children's Cancer Fund.

The event is open from 12pm to 3pm and guests of all ages are welcome to put their creativity to the test and carve out their most ghoulish design.

For younger children, there is a 'creepy colouring' station with plenty of spooky pictures to choose from, as well as a Halloween themed cake sale for additional donations to the charity.

Eva Neupauer-Jones, General Manager of Missenden Abbey, in London Road, Great Missenden, said The Thomas Ball Children's Cancer Fund was a cause ‘close to our hearts’ and money raised would go towards its annual Christmas trip taking sick children to Disneyland Paris.

Missenden Abbey, which is owned by Buckinghamshire New University, has previously donated proceeds from its annual Summer Fair to the charity and the charity has also held fundraising coffee mornings at the venue.

Entry is £3 per person (under 2s go free) and pumpkins and carving tools will be provided by Missenden Abbey. Visitors are also welcome to wear Halloween costumes.

Carvers must register for their pumpkin by 20 October either online or by calling Missenden Abbey on 01494 866811. Under-16s must be accompanied by an adult.
