Arbroath was safe from ‘baddies’ on May 2 as a motley crew of Superhero’s descended on supermarket Morrisons for Tay FM’s Cash For Kids Day.
No need for the Batmobile as the Dundee based radio station’s presenters Stuart Webster and Erin Linton set off on a superhero tour on their very own National Express bus donated for the day.
Dressed as Superman and Batgirl the presenters took over the tannoys and encouraged listeners and shoppers to part with their money for the Tay FM Cash for Kids charity.
The superheros also jumped on the tills and were helping ring up the groceries as they entertained the customers, helping to raise as much as possible.
Staff and customers got involved in the fundraising effort with some rival hero outfits as well a number of activities going on throughout the morning.
The Morrisons managers Man v Food style eating contest saw a colossal attempt to eat 10 burgers donated by McDonalds, in 10 minutes. Needless to say no-one was successful.
Courage the Cat, the Cash for Kids mascot, was also prowling around and even turned his hand to haircutting as he helped hairdresser Alana Sterrick shave Michael Shore’s head.
Community Champion at Morrisons, Leanne Ritchie said: “Pupils from Arbroath High School were also bag packing and they did a great job.”
An overnight stay in a 5* hotel, donated by Bill Adams from the Harbourside Guesthouse, enticed many people to try the raffle.
Ritchie said: “It went fantastically, the presenters caused quite a stir but the whole day went really well, it couldn’t have gone any better.”
The funds raised from Superhero Day will be used to support disabled and disadvantaged children living in the local community.
