Charitable zombies invade Plymouth City Centre
The streets in the centre of Plymouth were infested with the living dead as zombies mingled with shoppers for a zombie walk. Luckily for the shoppers, the zombies were visiting the town centre for a good cause and though there were cries for 'brains!' the event went off without anyone being eaten.
The zombie walk is a charitable event, arranged by a group of businesses in Plymouth to raise money for St. Luke's Hospice.
"The idea started by looking at events going on in other cities and then bringing that to Plymouth. It started to gain momentum online and through the help of companies like Blue Banana and Smart-FX we have had 125 people register online," organiser Neil Trigger of Ghostly Publishing said.
The zombies could win a VIP shopping experience at Blue Banana with £50 to spend if they won the 'best-dressed zombie' prize and the walk ended at Waterstones in Drake Circus where author Rich Pitman was signing copies of his new book..

Two of the Plymothians taking part in the walk were Claire Rowley and Sam Scantebury.
"We came because it was a charitable event. The dress is actually my old wedding dress and it took a couple of days to change it for this event and the make up took about 1½ hours to apply," Sam Scantebury said.
"We are really looking forward to the walk itself, but it has been good fun just getting here. I took the bus with my little son and the reactions once I got on it were something to behold," Claire Rowley said.
