My Story

Welcome to our virtual Annie's Room... read on to find out more.

Inspired by the story Annie, a little ghost the Japanese medium Aika Gibo encountered in of the 17th-century rooms on The Close in the 90s, The Real Mary King's Close has chosen Edinburgh-based charity Radio Forth’s Cash for Kids as their charity partner in 2020.

Globally renowned, young Annie’s heartbreaking story is ours to tell.
Every since the Japenese medium brought a doll to the room to calm poor wee Annie down, thousands of people have been following Gibo's example by leaving toys, jewellery, and personal souvenirs as presents. Many visitors also leave money behind, but we believe Annie is actually quite content with just the new toys she has got to play with. Therefore, the monetary funds raised in her honour can help support kids today in equally unfortunate circumstances.

As you might not be able to visit us in person at the moment, please consider donating to support local children in this 'virtual Annie's room'.

We are raising money to support Radio Forth Cash for Kids so they can make a real difference to the lives of local children and young people this Christmas. Everything raised in our area stays in our area, with a focus on alleviating poverty, supporting disability and improving quality of life. Any amount you care to give is very much appreciated!

Thank you very much,
The Real Mary King's Close Team
