People in the Borders are being asked to be a Superhero this May to make a difference to local children.
Pupils, students, and employees are being encouraged to dust off their superhero outfits and join in with charity fundraising organised by local radio station Radio Borders.
Every year the station organises a Superhero Day to raise money for local charities. This year they have chosen to support the real life superheroes at Penumbra, and the essential youth work they do within Scottish Borders high schools to support good mental health.
As part of Superhero Day schools, colleges, universities, and places of work can reveal their inner superhero by fundraising in a wide variety of super-hero themed ways. Suggestions for activities include holding a super quiz or a onesie day, or even running a superhero dress up competition. Organisers Radio Borders have said the wackier your idea, the better.
Activities can take place any time, but ideally between 1 – 5 May. Every penny raised locally stays locally, so fundraisers can be sure that their support will directly benefit a local child with a minimum of 80p from every pound donated going to children.
