Fundraising: The things they do

Coffin lodger Rebecca Wilson, 28, from South Norwood in London is being transported to Edinburgh in a coffin on 15 April to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. When she arrives in the city, she will be lowered into an underground vault where a seance will take place. She hopes her morbid experience will raise £3,500 for the charity. Rebecca, who chose to support the charity because her grandfather suffers from heart problems, will be joined on her macabre adventure by her friend Sally Back. The event will be broadcast by the BBC later this year. Rebecca said: "I'm a little apprehensive, but I can't really back out of it now."
