There were some spooktacular costumes on show when the team at Performance Improvement and Mystery Shopping Company, Douglas Stafford, joined in with Halloween celebrations to raise money for charity.
The company, which is based in Portsmouth and covers the Isle of Wight and the rest of the United Kingdom, has been raising money for its nominated charity, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance, throughout the year.
Some of the ghoulish outfits included witches, ghostface from the Scream movies and Beetlejuice, while some decided on other fun fictional characters.
Chief Executive Nigel Cook decided to spice things up a bit and asked staff members to pick their favourite costume. Â Â The winner was chosen as Helpdesk Co-ordinator, Katie Perrin, who dressed up as Spirit of Jazz from the Mighty Boosh. Â Â â€œWe let all the team members know what was going on and everyone made the effort to help raise money for charity, which is the most important thing,â€ she said.
Douglas Stafford Operations Director, Ben Sargeant, said: â€œHampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance is a very important charity and one which Douglas Stafford is proud to support. Â Â There were some impressive costumes on display and our team are always keen to join in with fundraising initiatives.â€
The fancy dress day raised around Â£100 for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance. Â Â So far this year, the company has raised around Â£1,500 for the charity, which will go towards keeping the air ambulance flying and helping to provide a lifesaving service.
