Callendar Park was filled with the sounds of terrified screams on Halloween as hundreds of brave souls took part in a terror trail.

The Halloween Spootacular, organised by Strathcarron Hospice, raised thousands for the Fankerton facility with over 600 people dressing up and taking part. For little ones, the front of Callendar House hosted a spider hunt and guising event while the back was a terrifying walk featuring zombie, ghouls and ghosts.

Organiser Coleena Brodie said the event far exceeded their expectations.

Coleena said: “We were expecting around 200 people to take part but thanks to the support from The Falkirk Herald, the event had great publicity and 600 people turned out to take part and support the hospice.

“Money is still coming in, but so far we’ve raised over £3000.”

The night was possible thanks to volunteers from Denny High School, including English teacher Alasdair MacKenzie who helped to train the zombies, pupils form Larbert High and Rotarian Frank Clark and his team.

Strathcarron Hospice has already made enquiries to bring the event back next year, even bigger and scarier.
