A Lichfield retailer says shoppers who pick up a ‘ghost’ pumpkin will also be helping creating green spaces in local communties.

The Halloween campaign will see 50p from the sale of each £2 white pumpkin donated to the Groundwork organisation.

The group is made up of a number of charities working to create greener and healthier communities.

Hannah Gallimore, Central England Co-op’s corporate responsibility manager, said:

“We are extremely proud of our relationship with Groundwork and are keen supporters of the work they do in the community which fits in so well with our aims of creating a sustainable Society for all.

“This Halloween we are looking to help Groundwork to make a real difference with projects delivering green spaces and sustainable solutions for our communities and we know our kind-hearted customers will be more than willing to support by picking up a special ghost pumpkin and at the same time give their Halloween celebrations a unique twist.”

“We’re delighted to be working with Central England Co-op on this innovative partnership and hope that customers enjoy picking up their ghost pumpkins over Halloween, as their purchase will help create quality green spaces that will benefit their whole community.”
