Have you noticed how many pennies a Freddo will fetch these days?

How about sherbet lemons and Parma Violets?

Trick or treating is becoming an increasingly lucrative business and, this Halloween, an Ilford bank is joining the party.

Metro Bank, in High Road, will be hosting a children’s craft session this Sunday, October 28, from noon to 4pm.

It is inviting families to join in an afternoon of pumpkin decoration.

And Metro Man – the bank’s mascot – will be present handing out “spook-tacular” treats and goodies.

Iain Kirkpatrick, Metro Bank’s managing director of retail banking, said: “We’re looking forward to our annual Halloween workshop and can’t wait to meet even more local people, while having some light-hearted fun.

“So, get your creative hats on and pop in-store for a fun-filled day.”

Metro Bank also provides schools and youth groups with a free financial education programme.
