On 26 October 2014 the streets of Worcester were overrun by a zombie horde of about 50 participants, bringing the Worcester Zombie Walk back to life.
During the day people tried their luck on the Zombola and took part in a zombie themed quiz with a number of prizes donated by local companies. Before the walk started people could pay a small fee to have their faces painted, and when the bell tolled at 1200 hours zombies were treated to a warming up exercise of ‘Simon Pegg says’ which was repeated a few times throughout Worcester city centre. Zombies also did the Time Warp, Thriller and a number of other dances.
On behalf of the organisers, Amy Griffin would like to say: "a huge thank you to everyone involved, those who donated prizes, the photographers trying to outrun the horde, the volunteer face painters and most importantly those who dressed up for the occasion, the costumes were outstanding. We raised just over £305 for CLIC Sargent and we look forward to beating that amount next year."
There was very positive feedback throughout the day, and anyone wishing to see photos can view them on Facebook.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Anna Finnegan said: "Thank you so much to the organisers and all who took part in the Zombie Walk, making so much effort. What a unique and fun way to fundraise for children and young people with cancer."
