Packed to the rafters with clowns, pumpkins and skeletons, Mrs Duport is hoping to raise money for Guernsey Alzheimer’s by inviting the lucky – or unlucky – to cross the threshold of a new house and see what is in store for them.
Although usually at her house, for its third year it will be at her parents’ house at L’Islet.
‘It has been at my house for the last two years but my house is full with family at the moment so we are going to do it at my parents,’ she said.
‘It’s bigger, there’s more outside space and we’re nearly finished already.
‘We’ve got the spiders on the house, the lighting set up and the smoke ready for a night of ghouls and ghosts.
‘This year we’ve even got a self-isolation ward.
‘Plus there’ll be sweets for the children and a shot of “blood” red wine for the adults.’
Visitors to the house can leave a donation as they enjoy the spookiest night of their lives, thanks to the decoration design by Mrs Duport’s brother, Paul Skipton, and it will go to a charity close to both their hearts as their dad lives with Alzheimer’s disease.
Last year around £3,000 was raised for Guernsey Alzheimer’s and this year she is hoping to raise just as much and if not more.
The ghoulish goings on are at La Ruette, Les Tracheries, L’Islet, St Sampson’s, between 5 and 8pm from Wednesday to Saturday. The house will also be open from 3-6pm on Sunday.
Parking is at the Fort Complex next door.
