Brave volunteers needed

spooky sleepover fundraising event

Fearless participants are needed to experience two unforgettable and unique nights to raise money for St John Ambulance to help them continue their life saving work.

This Halloween’s eve, St John Ambulance is calling on adventurous souls dressed in their scariest costumes to embark on a new 10k Creepy Crawl around the sinister landmarks of London.

The first ever Creepy Crawl will take place at dusk on Friday 30 October, the eve of Halloween, starting at atmospheric London Bridge and winding its way around the capital’s historical sights, famed for their bloody past and ghostly sightings.

These are opportunities not to be missed and are the perfect way to get into the Halloween spirit while raising money to help St John Ambulance continue its work training, caring and saving lives.

This event will be followed by another scary event in November. If you’re hungry for even more ghoulish experiences the Spooky Sleepover takes place on the night of Saturday 21 November until Sunday morning at Eastbury Manor in Barking and is guaranteed to be a hair-raising occasion.

Situated upon the former site of Barking Abbey, which was founded in 666 AD, the Elizabethan manor was built in the 1570s and is steeped in history. Falling into decay in 1918, the house was restored by The National Trust.

Tara Sherjan, Head of Corporate Partnerships and Events at St John Ambulance, says: ‘We’re calling on the curious and brave, who love a good ghost story and want to learn more about the chilling events in London’s history to sign up to the Creepy Crawl, and if you’re strong enough to endure an entire night in a rumoured haunted manor the Spooky Sleepover will definitely test your nerves.

‘These are opportunities not to be missed and are the perfect way to get into the Halloween spirit while raising money to help St John Ambulance continue its work training, caring and saving lives.’
