A variety of heroes attended Alverstoke Infant School today to raise money for Children in Need.

The pupils were asked to dress up as their heroes as part of the BBC’s annual Children in Need fundraising campaign. The superheroes raised more than £200 to help disadvantaged kids in the UK and around the world.

Headteacher Steph Greenwood said: ‘The children really enjoyed it, they love dressing up. ‘We do quite a lot of work telling the children about those less fortunate than themselves. It’s nice to see the children so willing to help other people’’

As well as Superman, Spiderman and other well known characters some other overlooked heroes were represented. One young boy grabbed his briefcase to dress up as his biggest hero: his Dad.

The teachers got involved in the dressing up as well, and Batman and Robin could be seen teaching the pupils.

Schools and businesses across the region took part in the annual BBC fundraiser.
