A GROUP of people have raised money for charity in a spooktacular way.

A team of dedicated members from McDonald’s, on Afon Road, spent last night in Wales’ oldest and most haunted inn: The Skirrid Inn, in Abergavenny.


11 employees took on the terrifying challenge to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) which is a McDonald’s charity.

South Wales Argus:

RMHC builds and runs complexes next to major hospitals to help support families with accommodation while their child is ill in hospital.

McDonald’s staff from stores throughout the country regularly hold events for RMHC, with Ebbw Vale’s store holding a psychic evening earlier this year which raised hundreds of pounds.

The team raised £110 towards their yearly £1,500 target.

Debbie Armstrong was one of the staff members who spent the night and said: “I’ve stayed at the Inn before and it wasn’t as active as always, but it was still a great team bonding exercise.

"We spent all night at the Inn and were only let out this morning.

“There were a few spooks in the graveyards and some strange bangs throughout the night, but nothing too serious.

South Wales Argus:

“On behalf of the team we wish to thank Geoff the landlord of the Skirrid Inn for his generosity, and Louise Powell Store Manager for organising this event.

“Thank you to the staff for surviving the night.”
