OWL (Outcomes with Learning), our activity centre for people with disabilities in Dolgellau, Gwynedd, has raised £251.20p for charity after holding a fun day.
Staff donned super hero outfits for the event held in aid of Children in Need. They invited staff and people who use the service and at Regard services at Cerrig Cornel and Beudygwyn Farm to join in and take part.
OWL Cerrig Camu manager Gavin Lovegrove and staff swapped their work clothes for Superhero outfits for the day. Gavin Lovegrove was Superman, Debbie Jones as Bat girl and David Taylor as Spiderman.
Said Gavin: “We had the best fun. It was great to release our inner-superheroes and put our ‘powers’ to good use.
“We created a photo booth for anyone who’d like a picture with their favourite comic book and the chance to buy the shot afterwards.
“Everyone had such a great day. It was wonderful to know we were all doing our bit for such a worthwhile cause.
“People really entered into the spirit of things, coming along in fancy dress, and joining in all the fun.”
To ‘fuel up’ and get the party started, staff at the Old Barmouth Road centre laid on free sandwiches and drinks.
The event raise money by selling Children in Need merchandise, along with cakes sweets and chocolate Pudsey’s.
Karaoke and a ‘pin the clothes on the superhero’ game where also enjoyed by all.
