Ronald McDonald House fundraising manager Karinia Lee, second from left, gets a fright on her first visit to Spookers as general manager Julia Watson and McDonaldâ€™s Takanini and Papakura franchisee Martha Hill look on.
A spooky staff party has turned frightened fastfood workers into fundraising freaks.
Screams are often heard coming from haunted attraction Spookers at the former Kingseat psychiatric hospital.
But at the McDonaldâ€™s staff Christmas party last year each shriek from an employee was worth about $30 to sick children supported by the Ronald McDonald House charity.
McDonaldâ€™s franchisee Martha Hill and Spookers general manager Julia Watson hit on the idea two years ago and since then about $64,000 has been raised.
“It evolved into a Christmas party for the McDonaldâ€™s crew and management and it grew from there,” Mrs Hill says.
“Last year we had 1355 people â€“ they love it and theyâ€™re already asking when are we doing it next year.”
Raising $38,000 from last yearâ€™s event has ensured the party will go ahead again this year. Ms Watson says the fundraiser is a great opportunity for staff to contribute to charity and raise a little hell at the same time.
