Zom­bies com­ing!

Drogheda Independent - - OPINION -

IF you see a blood­ied, ban­daged group of the walk­ing dead ap­proach on Sun­day 29th Oc­to­ber, do not panic: they are the fun lov­ing par­tic­i­pants of Drogheda Zom­bie Walk, a novel fundraiser de­signed to sup­port three lo­cal char­i­ties.

This is the sec­ond year of the Zom­bie Walk, a char­i­ta­ble event that pro­vides myth­i­cal flesh eat­ing char­ac­ters an op­por­tu­nity to chan­nel their good in­ten­tions and have a bit of fun. A brain­child of the in­de­fati­ga­ble Declan Kier­ans, this year’s event will in­clude a Zom­bie Walk (think Paddy’s Day for zom­bies) through the town and lots of fun as­so­ci­ated events for the young and the young at heart.

The ben­e­fi­cia­ries of this year’s event are Alzheimers Ire­land, Drogheda Home­less Aid and SOSAD and par­tic­i­pa­tion is pos­si­ble by mak­ing con­tact with any of th­ese great char­i­ties for spon­sor­ship cards or to en­quire about vol­un­teer­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties on the day. Al­ter­na­tively you can reg­is­ter on the day for €10.
