A Huddersfield family are hoping an unusual Halloween trick will be a real treat for a good cause.
For, come October 31, at least two members of the Evans family of Longwood will be getting into a home-made coffin as fundraisers look on.
And the spooky stunt is all about raising money for Kirkwood Hospice.
Dad Melvin Evans devised the party piece years ago.
“I wanted to do something special for the kids at Hallowe’en,” he said. “It all started as a bit of fun around trick or treat time. It was something different and exciting for them.
“It just continued year after year, getting bigger all the time.”
Last year, more than 50 people turned up at the family home in Botham Hall Road to take photos and join in the fun.
“A neighbour then suggested doing it for charity and we thought: ‘Why not?’” said Melvin.
Melvin, his wife, Tina, sons Andrew and Christopher and daughter, Sally, will all be donning Halloween-themed costumes for the event. There will be guises such as a zombie, werewolf, grandma and the Grim Reaper.
“Christopher and I will be getting into the coffin and maybe others too,” said Melvin.
Holding out collecting buckets will be Kirkwood Hospice representatives, along with the Evans family and friends.
Melvin said that by last weekend, more than £70 had already been raised through raffle ticket sales.
“We just want to raise as much money as we can,” he said.
