No tricks, only treats - £375 raised to support PCP’s Options service

The Pioneering Care Centre (PCC) in Aycliffe transformed for spooky season to offer half term family fun whilst supporting rewarding community projects.

On Friday 28 October, staff from the Pioneering Care Partnership (PCP) took part in the ‘spooky sleepover’ at the PCC, to raise funds for PCP’s Options service. Eight braved the night and (despite the haunted ghouls) raised £375, with support still growing!

Linda West, Options Coordinator, said: “Options members are very excited about the upcoming renovation. This project is so important to all of us, and I’d like to thank everyone who has donated, or took part in the sponsored sleepover! We had so much fun raising money for a brilliant cause.”

Early in the week, the PCC carried on the spooky theme and welcomed families for a Halloween Fun Day with children’s author and illustrator, Liz Million, hosting a ‘wicked’ arts and crafts session, a scary storytelling session and a disco.

The party didn’t stop there - as PCP’s Options service for adults with learning and physical disabilities, held its annual Halloween disco on Thursday 27 October. Options members dressed up and danced the night away and tucked into a delicious supper of pie and peas from the Garden Kitchen.

The PCP is proud to offer communities in the region free community events, so no one has to miss out on the fun!

There’s still time to dig deep and donate to PCP’s Options fundraiser. All proceeds from the Halloween fundraiser are donated to Options day service to support members to be their best.
