Tricks, treats and ghostly goings-on

Pint-sized ghouls with streaks of green in their hair, pointy red fingernails and chalk-white faces arrived by the score at Quinta Shopping to turn this year’s Halloween party into a seriously scarey affair.

There were plenty of treats provided by Algarve children’s charity ACCA, who set up stands to entertain a very happy audience. From apple bobbing, to Halloween biscuit decoration, squeamish lucky dips (with prizes buried in cold, wet gooey pasta), to giant spider-making, little faces beamed with excitement.

ACCA Committee members and volunteers were delighted with the day’s fundraising which will help towards special therapies vitally needed by less fortunate children.

Meanwhile, the charity will be holding its annual Christmas Fair on December 18 at the Conrad Hotel in Quinta do Lago. Organisers say it “will be the perfect place for those last-minute gifts, some delicious eats, and an early start to the festive week”.
