One of Britain’s haunted castles will creak open its doors on Saturday 24 November 2007 in aid of Diabetes UK. The ancient building will be taken over for a sponsored all-night vigil by Living TV’s ‘Most Haunted’ celebrity Medium, David Wells.
Castle Bolton in Wensleydale, North Yorkshire, is home to ghosts and ghouls including: a shade, which can be seen crossing the courtyard; a figure of a grey Lady – often thought to be the presence of Mary Queen of Scots; and several mischievous presences that make noises and move objects.
“This Fright Night is set to be a chillingly exciting evening," said Jeff Breen, from Diabetes UK Northern & Yorkshire.
"Everyone will have a one-off experience they will never forget whilst raising valuable funds for Diabetes UK’s vital work.”
How to take part
Are you brave enough to face your fears and spend the night at Castle Bolton? Would you like to undertake a Vigil with David Wells? Do you dare to be locked up alone in a dungeon? If you think you can handle it, call the Fundraising team on 01325 488606 to request an information pack and to book your tickets.
The £60 entry fee covers the cost of staging this event. This will ensure that all the money raised will go towards the costs of diabetes research, care and support. The entry fee also covers the cost of a medieval banquet and tea and coffee throughout the evening. Gates open at 6.30pm for a 7pm start, and the event finishes at 2am. Admission is by ticket only.
David Wells is offering the money-can’t-buy prize of a personal past life regression to the person who collects the most sponsorship money for the charity on the night.
