Spooky Sleepover

If you happen to be in Sheffield, then this would be a great opportunty:

GHOST-busting volunteers are being sought for a spine-tingling challenge - a spooky sleepover in one of Sheffield's most haunted buildings.

The Cavendish Centre for Cancer Care wants 30 fearless fundraisers to sign up for the eerie event.
They will sleep the night inside the turret house at Manor Lodge on Manor Lane - rumoured to be haunted by the ghost of Mary Queen of Scots.
The Haunted House Sleepover, on Saturday October 30, aims to raise at least £2,000 for the cancer therapy centre on Wilkinson Street in Broomhall, Sheffield.
Volunteers will get into the spirit of things with a creepy ghost walk around the medieval Manor Lodge site before being bolted inside the turret house with little more than torches, flasks, and sleeping bags for protection.
There will even be a series of spectral readings from literature students at the University of Sheffield, performing their own material and reciting scary prose.
Each participant will have to sign an eight-clause disclaimer agreeing not to leave the sleeping area unless escorted by staff and confirming they are "fully aware of the elements of risk involved" in the event.

...and it's for a great cause! If anyone does do this, please let me know.
