Happy Halloween

On Saturday November 1st 2014 the doors of Craven Arms Community Centre were opened to the scary sight of witches, ghouls, skeletons and other frightening sights. The amazing Empathy children once again rose to the challenge and all coped amazingly. In a less supportive environment many would have struggled with costumes, noise and the fear of the unknown but the event went off brilliantly.
