Zombies swap brains for beer in Alcester

ZOMBIES in Alcester swapped brains for beer when they joined a charity pub crawl around town.

The event raised £200 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

The thirsty undead gathered at the Alcester Inn before moving onto a number of pubs where they celebrated life above ground with 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.”
