Two volunteers from a Fenland charity will be creating a spooky display to raise vital funds for Eddie’s.
Jo and Tommy Kelly have been befrienders with Eddie’s for almost four years and in this time they have developed a great friendship with Stephen.
Jo and Tommy said: “The befriending scheme allows and encourages people to meet to enjoy common interests and share fun times in a safe, controlled but flexible way.
“We very quickly became friends with Stephen and have a great relationship with him.”
The couple says they have developed a great insight into the work of Eddie’s and have decided to fundraise for them with a Halloween event.

The Kellys live almost opposite The Men of March Pub, in Wisbech Road, and would love for as many people as possible to come along, take a look at the wonderful display and make a donation to support Eddie’s.
Suzanne Lombardo, volunteers co-coordinator at Eddies said; “We are thrilled that Jo and Tommy have kindly decided to support Eddie’s this year with their traditional Halloween activities.
