Marie Curie Organise Spookathon

Scores of courageous campers will be braving Britain’s most haunted battlefield in the hope of spotting a spook or two.

This weekend more than a hundred people will pitch their tents at Edge Hill, the scene of violent fighting in the English Civil War.

Marie Curie Cancer Care is organising the two-day ‘Spookathon’ at the battlesite at Radway, near the Warwickshire/Oxfordshire border.

Campers will collect sponsor money to raise cash for Marie Curie nurses, who provide care at home for terminally ill cancer patients.

The event, on 24 and 25 October, promises to provide plenty of fun for the fearless visitors.

Re-enactments of the battle, tours of the battlefield, camp fires and a pig roast are all on the agenda. And for the fearless – or just plain foolish – a moonlit talk about the ghosts and spirits which haunt the field.

A spokeswoman for Marie Curie Cancer Care said:

"There has been a good response to our appeal for campers and the figures are increasing daily.

"It should be a fun weekend and will help boost our funds."

Anyone interested in taking part should contact 01789 262285.
