FULL OF spine-tingling scares, chills and thrills, Dundas Market welcomed Creepy Creatures to the centre last weekend to celebrate Halloween.
Children cackled with delight as the Middlesbrough-based shopping centre welcomed a spooktacular petting zoo to Dundas Market on Saturday 24th alongside frightening face painting and a Halloween disco by TFM Radio Cash for Kids.
From snakes to snails with hissing cockroaches and millipedes, children were able to pet and hold a whole host of creepy creatures.
Shoppers were invited to join in the fun, with TFM Cash for Kids who gave away vouchers to spend in Dundas Market, as well as afternoon tea at Jeans Kitchen and a photoshoot courtesy of Teespics.
Fundraising for TFM Cash for Kids charity took place during the day and over £100 was collected from generous shoppers and passers-by. The money will be used to help and support local children and young people who are suffering from abuse or neglect, who are disabled, have special needs, or simply need extra care and guidance. Courage the Cat, the charities mascot was on hand to entertain too.
David Harris, Manager of Dundas Market, said:
“The focus for Dundas Market is around family fun and shopping and we wanted to create a programme of activities that both parents and children could enjoy.
“We have plenty more free events coming soon including our monthly food and craft market which takes place on the last Friday and Saturday of every month and our Christmas craft event on 5th December where children can come along, make Christmas cards and baubles plus other themed items.”
