A final call has gone out for wannabe heroes to take part in St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Hospice Superheroes sponsored walk for men at the end of this month.

The hospice is asking men to don superhero guises (but fancy dress is optional) for a five-mile walk around Haverhill on Sunday, May 31.

Organiser Jenny Baskett, hospice events and challenges fundraiser, said: “There is still time for men to sign up to be Hospice Superheroes and have a good time.

“Everyone taking part will be given a pie and pint at the end as an added incentive. All who take part, whether on their own or in a group, will be given a superhero-sized welcome so no one will feel left out.”

It is the first time the walk has been held in Haverhill – previously it was in Bury St Edmunds – with the 2015 event starting at the Burton Centre, in Camps Road, at 2.30pm (registration from 1.30pm).

Everyone taking part in Hospice Superheroes should aim to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship.

The minimum age for mini-heroes is 10: Walkers aged 10-17 must be accompanied by a grown-up superhero aged 18 Earth years or more, and obtain parental consent.

Hospice Superheroes is not a race, so no running, jogging or low-level flying is allowed.

For more information or to request a registration form, call Jenny on 01284 715583, email jenny.baskett@stnh.org.uk or sign up online at www.stnicholashospicecare.co.uk.

Registration costs £15.
