A ‘Superhero’ fun day raised hundreds of pounds for South Yorkshire’s Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.

Staff from Hobbycraft, at Meadowhall Retail Park, dressed up as their favourite superheroes and spent the day making masks, capes and cakes with customers, as part of National Superhero Day.

Manager Mark Arragon said the day had been a success and added: “We had lots of superhero-themed activities going on in the store, such as cupcake decorating and finger puppet making.

“All 75 Hobbycrafts nationwide are committed to raising as much cash as possible for children’s hospices throughout 2013 and we’re personally aiming to raise £4,000 for Bluebell Woods by the end of the year.

“The work of charities like these are so important and we want to thank our customers for supporting us in this goal.”
