Just a normal Wednesday night at the Winehouse in Üzümlü? We think not!

Animal Care Üzümlü organised a spooky night for their Halloween Spectacular.

A spooky halloween spectacular

64 Spooks, Ghouls and Zombies raised a much needed 2215 TL to support the Street animals feeding and healthcare scheme in the Üzümlü area.

The Winehouse provided suitably themed meals; Deadly Fungus (Garlic Mushrooms), Zombie Brains (Meatball Casserole), and Snotty Spittle (Lemon Cheesecake).

Entertainment for the children included a mini raffle (everyone got a prize), a colouring competition and a piñata eyeball filled with sweets.

The fantastic Funky Fonics provided the music and the highlight of the evening was the Zombie Dancers who performed Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

Funky Fonics – the spooky version

The dancers, led by Denise Atkins, have been training and refining their dance skills for the last 6 weeks and it certainly paid off on the night.

The Zombies shuffled their way to the Winehouse before performing the iconic Thriller dance.

Thanks go to:

Jeff Singleton for compering the evening; The Zombie Dancers; Christine Hughes for making the piñata eyeball, preparing the raffle prizes and auction items, and children’s party bags and games; Funky Fonics for the great music; Keith Edwards and Dave Roue for the photography; Spike and all the Winehouse staff; Mehmet at The Grapes for letting the Zombies get ready and for a last minute rehearsal; Ertan at Park Alya for providing space for the Dancers to practice for the last 6 weeks; and finally everyone that came to support ACU. A great community effort from everyone.

On 1st November 2018 Animal Care Üzümlü (ACU), gained legal charity status and are no longer part of Hayed.
