Pumpkins dressed as the Wizard of Oz lion and tin man helped spread a message and earn money for charity at the Truro Mall.

Several mall businesses decorated pumpkins for a decorating contest in Oct. The pumpkins went on display and members of the public were encouraged to choose their favourite, and write the number it was assigned, along with a donation, in an envelope.

The Body Shop’s Wizard of Oz-themed entry was the winner, receiving 58 of 436 votes cast. In front of the pumpkins a small sign encouraged people to find their heart help end animal testing.

A total of $385.35 was donated, and will go to the Boys and Girls Club of Truro and Colchester.
