Last weekend the families of North London visited the Old Fire Station behind Holloway Road for GVWI’s Halloween Party. Children participated in a range of festive activities like apple-bobbing, mask making and had their faces painted all to raise money for the WI. A selection of halloween treats, hand-baked by members, were laid out including spiced cupcakes, pumpkin buns with beetle bits and gingerbread bats. Party-goers write able to take home their own carved pumpkins and all left with a big smile!
Not to be left out, a party for adults was held in the evening at GVWI favoured pub, N19. The pumpkin carving continued, showing off some of the DIY skills from friends of the WI. We also drew a very successful raffle with prizes from many local businesses. Member Yvette won the costume competition with a skeleton costume judged by bartender Remy.
The parties were successful in raising funds and awareness for the WI’s yearly campaign, organ donation. We hope to see you there next time!
