Children were encouraged to dress up as their favourite superheroes for Hallam FM’s Superhero Takeover at the Peace Gardens yesterday, which raises money for Cash for Kids. 

The day saw characters from Yorkshire Cosplay Con and friends, Optimus Prime and various food and fun stalls come  together to raise money for the charity.

Cash for Kids charity manager Allan Ogle said: “We were overwhelmed with the response to last year’s event so were delighted to be coming back again bigger and better with even more activities for all the family to enjoy.”

Tornado Potato, Snowy Cones, Cafe Carte, Wise Owl, Sugar Coated and Debras Cakes all joined with the fun. 

Allan said: “Thank you to all our volunteers and everyone donating towards our Superhero Day campaign which will help sick and disadvantaged children across South Yorkshire.”
