A house has been transformed into a spooky grotto in memory of a grandmother who died of pancreatic cancer.
Dawn and Malcolm Campbell and their 11-year-old daughter Amy, of Aberdour Place in Broughty Ferry, have been raising cash for charities for the past six years by opening up their home to the public.
But this year their efforts have a special meaning as Dawn, 50, recently lost her mum, Joyce Youngson, at the age of 76.
Joyce died on October 2 after a battle with pancreatic cancer just two months after she was diagnosed.
Dawn said: “It’s a very difficult cancer to diagnose – my mum didn’t get diagnosed for a long time and when she did she found out it was terminal.
“I didn’t know anything about pancreatic cancer before her diagnosis.
“She would be so proud that we are raising money.
“My dad is so proud of what we are doing.”
It’s now a yearly tradition for the Campbells to put up the chilling decorations.
So many people were coming to see their spooky efforts that a friend suggested the family hold a collection for charity.
Last year, money raised by decorating the house went to Ward 32 in Ninewells, as Dawn has had cancer twice and had treatment there.
This year, they are making the house “bigger and better than ever” in the hope of generating as much cash as possible for Pancreatice Cancer UK in memory of Joyce.
Dawn said that Amy is particularly fond of the Halloween house theme.
She said: “She absolutely loves it.
“A lot of her friends from school come to the house as well.
“It just comes to life. We put up spooky decorations and pick a different theme every year.
“Some of the themes we’ve done over the years include a graveyard and spooky hospital themes.
“The house is more scary every year.”
For this year’s theme, they’ve got a few special tricks up their sleeve and are even creating a haunted garden.
November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and the Campbell family will donate funds to mark the occasion.
Dawn has set up a Just Giving page in name of the cause, where the public can donate to Pancreatic Cancer UK, in memory of Joyce.
