Last chance
to join the Great British Ghost Hunt

Edinburgh venue sold out but spaces
still available for the RSS Discovery in Dundee

Make-A-Wish Foundation UK has a
final few places remaining for the first ever Great British Ghost Hunt, taking
place on Saturday 15 December 2007 in aid of the leading wishgranting charity
which grants wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening
illnesses.

Spaces have been going fast for this
unique and hair-raising event in which participants will join experienced
mediums and clairvoyants at 15 reputedly haunted locations across the country, where
they will have the chance to use authentic ghost hunting and psychic equipment
to track down ghostly activity. Results from each location will be entered into
a competition to battle it out for the title of UK’s Most
Haunted Venue 2007.

Ghost hunts taking
place in Scotland will be held at the RSS Discovery in Dundee,
which sailed to Antarctica with Captain Scott and is said to be haunted by the
footsteps of a young sailor, and the eerie Niddery Street Vaults in Edinburgh. Spaces have already sold out for the Edinburgh ghost hunt, but some are still available for the RSS
Discovery, Dundee.

The event is being organised in
conjunction with ghost hunting specialists, Fright Nights and all money raised
will go towards granting more magical wishes for children and young people with
life-threatening illnesses.

For more information about The Great
British Ghost Hunt, or to snap one of the remaining spaces, please contact Amanda
Hillhouse, Scotland Regional Manager at Make-A-Wish, on 0141 889 0220 or email amanda.hillhouse@makeawish.org.uk

Make-A-Wish is currently celebrating

  1. Please note that
    Make-A-Wish does not use phrases such as ‘terminally ill’ or similar
    phrases, in order to respect the sensitive nature of life-threatening
    illnesses and what they mean to children and young people and their families.
    We would ask that this approach is followed and that the term
    ‘life-threatening illnesses’ is used in material for publication.

Make-A-Wish grants magical wishes to

founded in the UK
in 1986.
