HAVE YOU ever wondered what ghosts and goblins eat?

If so, the answer was there for all to see at Lyttelton on the night of Halloween when a constant stream of ghouls, ghosts, goblins and witches made their way to the Lyttelton Bakery.

There they feasted upon Halloween-themed donuts and cupcakes in a cavern created especially for the night.

The idea was the inspiration of Bree Scott from Glamour Cakes and Vicki McSherry from Vic's Bakery.

Both women had experienced cyberbulling at very extreme levels. Rather than let this get them down and impact on their mental health they decided to respond in a positive way by playing on their creativity to raise funds for charity.

The idea for the Halloween fundraiser emerged from this.

The pair decided to put their energy into staging a special event, which saw their acclaimed products given a special Halloweeninspired twist.

Cakes and donuts were transformed into tasty themed treats to tempt all who were about on Halloween night. The event also provided an opportunity for local children to dress up, put on the face paint and live the fantasy.

The event raised $1200 for the Graeme Dingle Foundation.

This is a youth-based charity with an overall aim to guide young people onto a positive and fulfilling life path, benefitting individuals and their communities.

The programme includes a very strong component that educates young people about the danger of bullying and provided strategies to overcome these types of attacks.

Currently more than 7000 students are receiving these programmes in Canterbury each week.
