Twitter’s #VirtualPubCrawl is back again on 4th July

The online gathering has so far raised almost £5,000 from just three events, since the Hospice was named as its chosen charity in May.

The VPC takes place once every fortnight and Twitter users can chat to each other and post selfies using the hashtag #VirtualPubCrawl and following its founder, Rob Dignen @indierob9

The event has its own radio shows on Radio Free Matlock, the full itinerary of which is displayed below:

Rob Dignen said “The pub crawl has continued to gather a great following and raise so much money for Alice House. We have received so much support from everyone and there are far too many people to thank, so I’ll just say it’s my round”

Alice House Hospice Deputy Fundraising Manager Greg Hildreth said “It’s amazing how much the Virtual Pub Crawl has raised in such little time, it’s an amazing thing that has brought people together in a time of increased isolation and also seen some incredible kindness from those involved, with different fundraising activities and donations coming in from all over the UK and beyond.   This support is making a real difference to local patients and their families.

On behalf of everyone at Alice House, thank you so much for your support and I am sure we will have another great day on Saturday. Cheers!”
