Superhero Day 2017

Superhero Day

Cash for Kids had our annual Superhero Day campaign last week across the UK, and with your support over £500,000 has been raised so far with money still coming in – thank you!

We once again asked our supporters to dress up, join in the fun and fundraise or donate. All the money raised will stay in the local community within which it was raised, supporting disability, combating illness and improving quality of life for children aged 0-18.

Reeds Rains sales and lettings agents were our partners across Key 103, Radio City, Metro Radio, TFM, Rock FM, Viking FM, Hallam FM and Radio Aire and have done an amazing job supporting the campaign with an array of fundraising activities across their branches. Money is still coming in and we hope to have a total to announce for all their hard work very soon!

All kinds of wacky, superhero-themed activity happened across the day. Listeners at Hallam FM, Viking FM, CFM, Forth 1, MFR, Tay FM, Radio Borders, Metro Radio, TFM and across Northern Ireland all had the chance to win some amazing prizes in our Super Van competition – all in exchange for supporting the charity.

Meanwhile in Manchester and Liverpool some real-life superheroes took to the streets in the form of some of the children we and our partner charity in those areas, When You Wish Upon a Star, are supporting for a series of fantastic live stunts!

Fundraising is still due to take place at Wave 105 in Southampton and across Northern Ireland in the next couple of weeks, so watch this space!
