Frights and delights at Horsforth house

A couple have turned their home in Horsforth, Leeds into a Halloween horror house. Each room has been turned in to the stuff of nightmares, with tricks or treats around every corner!

Rod Dawson and his wife have done this every year to raise money for charity. They take donations on the night.

"We do it because we like to see people's faces and expressions as they wander round the house. It's fun for adults and children and it's not only on Halloween, because after that the money goes to a really good cause."

– Rod Dawson, owner of 'Halloween House'

Last year they say they had 1400 visitors all on the one night, and this year they say, will be extra special as they are soon to move away. This year all the funds raised will go to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance charity.
