IF you are not that keen on walking your children around the neighbourhood on October 31, knocking on doors for sweets then why not dress up and head inside for a special Halloween Party at The Hills Super Centre.

The retail centre is supporting the Kids with Cancer Foundation by signing up for the Scare Cancer campaign and is organising a fun evening of magic tricks and treats at both its Castle Hill and Marsden Park centres on Thursday, October 31. The fun starts at 4.30pm.

Tickets to what has been billed “a spooktacular evening of fun” cost $15 and include a Trick or Treat Scavenger Hunt, craft, face painting and a monster magic show. There will also be delicious halloween treats for attendees and their minders.

Funds raised at the Castle Hill store will also help Dinner on the Table to help families living with a disability.

Rachele Whelan from the Kids With Cancer Foundation said the national Scare Cancer campaign had raised $90,000 since 2014.

“Scare Cancer is all about kids helping kids. It’s held in conjunction with Halloween to get kids out there trick or treating for the ones that can’t get out of a hospital bed because they are so very sick and have no immunity. 100 per cent of these funds go to help families with a child suffering cancer, they also fund important clinician roles, and get passed on for cancer research.”

The Kids With Cancer Foundation based in Castle Hill has donated more than $25 million to hospitals families since 1998.
