The donation of a huge pumpkin (19stone) made Georgie Revill (Skils) & Belinda Leach (MNFU) spring into action with a charity pumpkin soup event down at the mill to raise both awareness and money for SKILS - Skills for Independent Living Scheme. This charity helps students with learning disabilities receive independent living and vocational training at Myerscough College in Preston. Due to the fact it was so near Halloween and half term it was decided to decorate the mill including the staff and helpers and provide a spooky tour round the mill for adults and children. A variety of different flavours of pumpkin soup were made along with homemade bread & cheese sandwiches, the bread donated by Ramsey Bakery & the cheese from Isle of Man Creamery. By the end of the 4 hours some 468 was raised.
