SUPER heroes will fill schools throughout West Yorkshire in May.
Pupils across Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield will be demonstrating their super powers during Children’s Hospice Week.
Youngsters will be donning masks and capes as part of the UK’s biggest awareness and fundraising week from May 15 – 22.
Community fundraiser Lauren Moore said: “Children’s Hospice Week is a great opportunity for members of the public to show support.
“There are so many heroic acts taking place across the country. Every penny raised will make a lifetime of difference to the children of West Yorkshire.”
Adults are being told they don’t need to dress up to be a hero. They could organise a pub crawl, quiz night or coffee morning to help raise cash.
The West Yorkshire Forget Me Not Trust is raising funds to provide specialist hospice and respite services for life-limited children from Kirklees, Calderdale and Wakefield.
The estimated building costs are more than £3m. More than £1.5m will be needed each year to provide services.
