The streets of Lismore will be crawling with zombies in search of brains tomorrow.

Organisers of the first annual, all inclusive, zombie walk, are calling on Lismore residents to get their zombie on as part of a fundraiser for mental health services in the city.

The action starts at the North Coast Tafe in Keen Street at 3pm, with the actual zombie walk kicking off at 5pm.

A highlight will be a flash-mob performance to the tune Thriller.

And to make sure the zombies have all the right moves, dance rehearsals are taking place today at the Alstonville Dance Studio in Park Avenue from 5.30pm to 7pm, and tomorrow at Lismore TAFE from 3.30pm.

Registration for the wallk is $5 and the money will be going towards Mental Health Month and supporting Haven NR, a group run by youth, for youth.

Registration is avaliable at the Ability Links stall at North Coast Tafe on the day.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
