Meet the Superheroes day raises ‘Super’ amount!

Hundreds of children from across the region got to meet some of their favourite superhero characters at our very special event held this month at Broughton Shopping Park.

Our ‘Meet the Superheroes’ Family Day on the 15th July saw children of all ages get to meet and have their photos with Spiderman, Batman, Iron Man, Wonder Woman, Supergirl and more – and has raised over £1000 (with more donations still coming in from the retailers at Broughton).

Regional Fundraising Manager Paula Hanford comments: “The children were so thrilled to meet their favourite characters – lots of the children even came dressed as their favourite superhero which was great to see!”

Here are some pictures from our amazing event – is your little superhero pictured here?

Many of the retailers at Broughton, including Toys R Us, WHSmith, Sports Direct and more, also generously donated prizes to the charity tombola which proved very popular on the day.

Paula adds: “We’ve been astounded by everyone’s generosity in supporting our charity on the day and would like to thank everyone who helped make this event such a success.”
