Specsavers in Keighley held a pumpkin carving competition for Halloween.
Specsavers in Airedale Shopping Centre invited Keighley children to bring in their pumpkins to display in the practice, with the winner of best pumpkin, twelve year old Max Skelding, announced on Saturday 29 October.
Staff also embraced the Halloween spirit, donning their spookiest Halloween outfits to raise money for Martin House Children’s Hospice.
‘It was great to display the children’s pumpkins in the window over Halloween for the public to see,’ said store director Glen Sedman.
‘There were some incredible pumpkins, which brought a real sense of Halloween in to the practice.’
Sweet prize for lucky winner
The lucky winner received a hamper full of sweet treats and goodies to enjoy.
Keighley Specsavers’ pumpkin carving competition took place during National Children’s Eye Health Month, which gave parents the perfect opportunity to book their children in for an eye test. Ensuring children under the age of seven have their eyes tested at least once a year could potentially help to cure eye problems that in the future may not be as easy to resolve.
