Prepare to be spooked in the woods as Scare Fest comes to Lincolnshire

A spooky Halloween festival will be coming to Lincolnshire all in aid of St Andrew’s Hospice.

Andy’s at St Andrew’s are holding their frightening fundraiser Scare Fest at Chambers Farm Wood, Wragby, near Market Rasen on Saturday, October 28.

By day, the woods is bursting with wildlife and care-free walkers but on a dark, dingy October night, the fundraising team at St Andrew’s Hospice will transform this popular beauty spot into a horrifying Halloween spectacular.

The Scare Fest is being staged to raise money for Andy’s at St Andrew’s, the Grimsby-based children’s hospice that serves the whole of Lincolnshire, Hull and the East Riding.

Fundraisers are asked to sign up to walk through this deep, dark woodland and overcome their fears as they stumble upon a series of obstacles.

Theresa Crowe is part of the fundraising team at the hospice and said: “Scare Fest will be the spookiest fundraiser of the year.

“We don’t want to give too much away but there will be plenty of tricks and treats along the route.

“There will be witches, zombies and all manner of ghostly figures and we expect to hear the screams and laughter echoing around the countryside.

“If you like horror films or scary stories, then this is just the event for you.”

Scare Fest is open to people aged 14 and over and costs £10 to register prior to the event and £15 on the night.

The event starts at 7.30pm and registration is open from 7pm.

Participants are asked to collect sponsorship money, as the registration fee is used to cover costs.
