Volunteers will watch all 31 Carry On films
A West Midlands tourist attraction is to host a charity event with a difference.

Brave volunteers are to watch all 31 films from the Carry On series back-to-back at Drayton Manor Park and Zoo in Staffordshire.

Carry On up the Manor, organised by the Tamworth and District Round Table, starts on 21 February and aims to raise 50,000 for charity.

The organisers need 200 people to take part in the 50-hour marathon, all of whom must raise 250 in sponsorship.

Fundraising event

The money raised will go to five children's hospices around the country.

Fundraisers will be provided with refreshments throughout the film-watching marathon and a goodie bag at the end.

Carry on creator Peter Rogers has given his permission for organisers to use the films in the fundraising event.

Colin Bryan, managing director of Drayton Manor Park said he was delighted to be sponsoring the event.

"It sounds like incredible fun and I can't wait to get involved in any way that I can," he said.
