Describe the project
Children from the community go door to door collecting cans/dried goods etc. on Halloween (Wednesday 31st Oct 2018) to donate to AVIVA (an organisation who provide family violence and support services).

Residents are invited to put a cut-out heart or balloon onto their letterbox if they would like to donate goods so that children (and adults) know which houses to go to.

Trolleys/wheelbarrows/prams etc. pushed around the valley with collections.

At 5.30-7.30pm everyone involved is invited back to the Community Centre to celebrate with a movie, popcorn, pizza and treats and to see how much is collected.
