WHEN Heroes Day creator Danny Glavin first came to Titchfield Primary School to launch the event it made a big impression on his near namesake Daniel Collins.

As a result, the nine-year-old chose to dress up on the big day as his new hero – Danny Glavin – wearing a white T-shirt and the shades like those Danny had on when he reached the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro in aid of Help for Heroes.

The youngster said: ‘He’s done a lot of good things, and he taught me the difference between a celebrity and a hero.

‘I chose Danny because of his charity work and I want to do things like that, too.

‘I want to climb Kilimanjaro one day and I want to help lots of charities, like Help for Heroes, Cancer Research UK and Water Aid.

‘There’s a bit of a mixture, everyone’s dressed up as someone different and I’ve really enjoyed today.’
