East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices’ (EACH) annual Glow Walks saw more than 200 people attend events in Felixstowe and Stowmarket, where they walked either two or three miles in their spookiest outfits.

EACH’s fundraising assistant for Suffolk and east Essex, Georgia Memory, said the events were a Halloween celebration for children, with a disco and games for those who took part.

Ms Memory, who attended the Felixstowe walk, said: “It was really quite magical – especially with the beautiful sunset, Felixstowe Pier in the background and the many glow sticks and head boppers lighting up the seafront.”

The two events are hoped to have raised more than £1,600 for the charity, which will support its work helping seriously ill young people and their families in East Anglia.
