Staff, schoolchildren and individuals across the Borders and north Northumberland will be transforming into superheroes on May 2 in aid of Cash for Kids.

The Radio Borders charity is looking for the support of people across the two regions to get involved in Superhero Day and register for fundraising plans now. The team will be out and about talking to locals who are making the effort in aid of helping disadvantaged children in our area.

Cash for Kids charity manager Candy Rafferty said: “We’re raising funds to support disabled and disadvantaged children living in our local community, but to really make a difference we need your support. The theme of Superheroes lends itself perfectly to having fun whilst making a real difference to young lives. While some may go all out and become a superhero right down to wearing their pants outside their trousers, anyone who is willing to fundraise for Cash for Kids is a superhero in our eyes.”

This year will be fourth the charity has held Cash for Kids Day, which is a region-wide event designed to get people involved in raising money for local children and having a bit of fun at the same time. Last year Cash for Kids raised over £80,000 and supported over 600 local children.

Candy added: “We’d love it if you could suit up, join in the fun and help us fundraise for local children on Friday, May 2. The lovely thing about Cash for Kids is that all the money raised in the area stays in the area to benefit our own local children.

“We have a few surprises up our sleeve and we’ll also be letting you know about challenges you can get involved with on the day.”

To get into the spirit of Cash for Kids Superhero Day, the charity already has a superhero name generator on their website.
