This Halloween 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 to raise money for the charity's life saving work.
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.
Throughout the walk over 100 ghouls, ghosts and other fundraisers in fancy dress will take in highlights such as the murder site of one of Jack the Ripper's victims, Fleet Street's location of the demon barber Sweeney Todd, the 'Bank Nun' ghost of the Bank of England who spooks Threadneedle Street searching for her hanged brother, and The Strand's Adelphi Theatre, haunted by an actor murdered by a jealous colleague. Hear tales of poltergeists, ghostly apparitions and legends, take part in spooky activities along the way and enjoy themed snacks to keep your energy up for the frights ahead.
Let your imagination run wild, get a team together and dress up as ghosts, zombies, monsters and mummies while getting friends and family to sponsor you to scare yourself silly while raising money for the nation's leading first aid charity.
