Spooky Halloween drive-in to raise money for Scunthorpe A&E


Spooky Halloween drive-in to raise money for Scunthorpe A&E

A huge outdoor cinema is coming to Scunthorpe ready for Halloween to raise money for Scunthorpe’s A&E department.

The huge outdoor screen will be showing two popular movies in the car park of The Sands Venue Stadium (Glanford Park) on Doncaster Road on Friday 29 October.

Two popular Halloween movies will be shown, first childhood classic Hocus Pocus at 5 pm and then the famous slasher Scream at 9 pm (18+ only).

Organised by the hospital’s official charity the Health Tree Foundation, money raised will be used to buy new facilities for Scunthorpe’s A&E department.

The charity is aiming to raise £35,000 through various fundraising events to buy new equipment such as mobile gaming units, free phone charging stations, artificial skylight panels and screens for TV and digital information displays.

There will be food stalls on the night including Jamie’s Sweet Emporium, Shaney’s Café (vegan option), Hepy’s Hog Roast and a popcorn cart, as well as a raffle and spooky surprises.

Emma Hartley, Scunthorpe’s community champion for HTF, said: “I can’t wait for everyone to join us for our Halloween spooky cinema. It’s going to be a scream! All the funds raised will go directly towards our A&E appeal for Scunthorpe hospital. We will use this money to purchase additional enhancements to improve the patient experience when they use our Emergency Departments.”

Tickets are on sale now via the Eventbrite website.

Prices for a car vary between £25 and £30 (plus booking fees) with a number of limited early bird tickets available.

Those attending are asked to arrive an hour before the film starts to make sure everyone is parked up before it begins.
