Mini super-heroes use their cute powers for Children in Need

Children from RAF Lossiemouth’s childcare centre donned superhero outfits and used their special powers to extract cash from helpless staff at the Moray base.

Around 40 youngsters aged between 18months and five-years-old tackled personnel throughout the station as part of their efforts to raise funds for Children in Need.

Supported along the route by proud parents and staff from the centre, one of their first ‘victims’ was Search and Rescue Flight Lieutenant Giles Smith.

He said: “I was delighted to support the sponsored toddle, and all the children looked amazing in their costumes.”

Throughout the week Pudsey and his army of helpers had been encouraging station personnel to buy cookies made in the Junior Ranks Mess.

Then on Friday 120 station personnel took part in a fun run around the perimeter of the camp – some even continuing the superhero theme by dressing up as Batman and Robin amongst others.

RAF Lossiemouth’s fundraising efforts were co-ordinated by Roy Hunte, the station’s physiotherapist.

Roy had a team from across the station helping him this year, he said: “RAF Lossiemouth always supports Children In Need and this year it was great the way people were happy to get involved and volunteer.

“Everyone has been generous and we have raised just over £1500 so far.

“We still have a big raffle coming up so we will add £300 or more to the total by the time all the money has been collected.”
