A popular Wisbech woman – who made a name for herself after building a near mile-long loom band ball – is set to raise charity cash at her Halloween decorated home next week.
Jade Farm is raising money for Macmillan Cancer Support this Halloween by selling hot dogs at her spooky home decorated with inflatables, pumpkins, skeletons and other scary decorations.
The 27-year-old, who was born with a rare genetic disorder that affects her sight, raised more than £880 for the cancer charity last year when she and her niece Beau Morgan made a giant loom band ball.
Jade’s mother said that she “just lends a hand” and Jade “runs it all”. She said: “It’s important for her to be someone. It’s something she’s good at and she finds enjoyment out of raising money for charity.”
On Wednesday, October 31, Jade will welcome members of the public to her Jeffery Avenue home decked with Halloween-themed decorations, including a large Nightmare before Christmas inflatable.
The event will run on Halloween from 10am until 8.30pm and hot dogs, donated by Gagens Butchers in Walsoken, will be served. Jade is asking for donations above 50p and she says that “everyone is welcome”.
Jade’s mother added: “She’s [Jade] quite popular in the town, I think that’s due to social media. She’s put out pleas for lots of Halloween decorations. A large percentage of the stuff we have on display was donated.
“After Jade campaigned online one lady, who was on holiday in America, brought back loads of decorations for her. She didn’t charge anything for them, she just let her have them.
“I think it’s good because although she is unemployed, she’s not just say at home. We have found something she is good at and one day she hopes to find employment from fundraising.”
This is the second year the family have decorated their home for Halloween and last year they served more than 100 hot dogs. Jade’s mum says she hopes they don’t have “too many people”.
Jade on the other hand says that this year is going to be “bigger and better than last year” and the home is going to look “a little different”.
