In the spirit of Halloween, Concord’s Outreach society, which is a society that organizes charitable events for the student body, organized a Haunted House to raise money for charity.
The entrance fee was £3 per person, and sure enough at about half past eight, a line of students stood outside the Morris building, brimming with excitement to experience the haunted house. People were split into groups of eight people or less and paired with a guide who directed them throughout the gory experience.
The Outreach society showed great organization in assigning different parts of the Morris building to different teams and upon entering the Haunted House, you could tell that a lot of work had gone into it. Each room was converted into something out of a horror movie and the concepts varied from elaborate plays to life-sized dollhouses. Some rooms even held games, where the winners received exciting prizes.
Students came out of the Haunted House spooked and entertained. At the end of the night the Outreach Society’s hard work paid off, with the Haunted House raising over £400 for charity. It was indeed a grand event.
After the Haunted House students were treated to a special Halloween Disco, with a professional DJ, who made sure we had a good time. Students came dressed to the disco in great costumes such as the Teletubbies and Hugh Heffner and from the smiles on people’s faces, you could see that everyone was having a fun time.
