Keate House staff have launched their 'Ghost Busters Challenge' where they will spend the night in one of the most haunted buildings in the region to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer's Society and Ronald McDonald House in Liverpool.
On the 2nd June over 20 members of our staff, guided by Daniel Moss of The Haunted Hunts, will visit the now abandoned Newsham Park Hospital, Asylum and Orphanage in Liverpool. The vast grade II listed building, constructed in 1870 by Alfred Waterhouse, is reputed by ghost hunters to be an extremely haunted and terrifying location.
Jill Brown, Activities Co-ordinator at Keate House and organiser of the event shared her thoughts on our team building challenge with a difference:
“ We wanted to create a team challenge that would take us all totally out of our comfort zone whilst raising money and awareness for two amazing charities. Newsham Park was picked as the haunted venue that would really test our resilience - it also has a link with Keate House, as the two buildings were designed and built by renowned architect of the time Alfred Waterhouse.
Our residents at Keate House have chosen to support the Alzheimer’s Society who work with people and families suffering with dementia; as well as Ronald McDonald House who are based within the grounds of Alder Hey children’s hospital and provide much needed free accommodation for families whilst their children are receiving treatment in the hospital.
Our target is set at raising £1,000 for the two organisations and we urge everyone to get behind and support us as we build up to the event"
