National Express West Midlands has been forced to cancel its charity zombie bus tonight (31/10) due to anti-social behaviour.
The charity Ghoulsville 666 bus service was due to run on Halloween to help raise funds for the children’s cancer charity CLIC Sargent.
Sadly, because of anti-social behaviour, the bus operator has been forced to cancel the service in order to keep its customers safe.
In a statement posted online, a spokesperson for National Express West Midlands said:
“Due to anti-social behaviour from a small group of people yesterday evening, National Express West Midlands has had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 666 Brum Zombie Bus service this evening (Thursday 31st October 2019).
“We apologise to anybody that had made plans to board the 666 Brum Zombie Bus this evening – we’re really sorry to have to disappoint them. But we must put the safety of our customers and staff first.
“National Express West Midlands would like to thank everybody who boarded the 666 yesterday evening (Wednesday 30th October 2019) and to everyone who donated to the CLIC Sargent youth cancer charity.
“If anyone would still like to give money to the CLIC Sargent charity, which fights to stop cancer destroying young lives, please go to https://donations.clicsargent.org.uk“
The zombie bus last ran in 2016 and raised over £200 for charity, National Express West Midlands had hoped to raise much more this year.
