Teams of collectors in spooky fancy dress, spent 14 hours in the pouring rain on October 31 (Halloween Day) outside Tesco, Aldi and Waitrose in Lewes, East Sussex; collecting food and household items for various local foodbanks.

Here we see spooky actors bantering with the “local living” about what to put in the collection basket. A bit of light-hearted fun.

Lewes Bonfire Society under the guidance of Mark Perryman (Labour Lewes) rallied the troops and a total of 228 collectors responded from seven sports clubs, six bonfire societies, six faith groups, three bands, two PTA’s and a group of chefs. Who were all supported by a superb admin team.

All of the food and household items generously donated by the people of Lewes will go to various foodbanks, to help local families both working and non-working through these difficult times.
