Alcester residents rise from the dead to take part in zombie pub crawl

Harry Leach 11th Nov, 2019

ALCESTER residents rose from the dead last Saturday to take part in a zombie pub crawl around the town.

Heavy rain didn’t deter the living dead from raising £200 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

The kind-hearted zombies gathered at the Alcester Inn at 7pm before moving onto eight different pubs where they played raffles and games.

After every pint, leftover change was put into a bucket.

Oraniser Marc Venables said: “It just felt right to say thank you to the hospital which has been looking after a close friend of mine.

“In some way, directly or indirectly, there is a child that some one knows who has been or is under the hospital’s care.

“We have received good feedback of the night on our Facebook page, although I think there were few sore heads the following morning.”
