Superheroes Picnic 2018 at dorfold hall gardens

Picturesque Dorfold Park in Nantwich will be the backdrop for a major event raising money for children’s charity The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice.

Superheroes Picnic returns this Sunday June 17 after raising a staggering £12,000 for local causes last year including the hospice and Ray of Hope, which supports the maternity and neonatal wards at Leighton Hospital.

Another fun-packed programme of family activity is promised by organisers and sponsors drawn from the South Cheshire business community.

Spokeswoman Victoria Graham, of Training Bytesize in Nantwich, said: “Last year we were overwhelmed with the support of local families who came along and really got into the spirit of things dressed in their superhero costumes.

“We welcomed more than 1,300 people and raised a fantastic £12,000. We’re busy planning and hope to make this year even bigger and better.”

Businesses have thrown their weight behind the event including The Cheshire Cat in Nantwich and The County Group, NLH and Brupac in Crewe.

Victoria, managing director of the project management training company, added: “There is a small group of us based in Nantwich, who have a passion for raising money for charity.

“We all have full time jobs and children but we are never too busy to turn our back on people that really need help raising money.

“A few years back we founded the Teddy Bears Picnic at Cholmondeley Castle and handed the reigns to The Wingate Centre as they were doing such a good job of running it without us.

“We then needed a new challenge and put our heads together to come up with the idea of Superheroes Picnic, a family event marking Father’s Day and supporting local charities.

“June 17 will be another chance to grab your cape and mask and come along and join the fun.

“The backdrop will be the stunning Dorfold Hall Gardens. We have a marquee and lots of outdoor space.”

Attractions will include inflatables, face painting, raffle, donkey rides, beat the goalie and tombola plus supercar displays and more.

There will be food and drink stations and a bar for adults serving beer, Pimms and Prosecco.

The event runs from 11am to 3pm and all proceeds will go to The Donna Louise Children’s Hospice which cares for young people with life-limiting conditions and supports their families.

Tickets are £7 for adults and £4 for children over three.
