Learners at Preston’s College recently dressed up as the world’s favourite superheroes to help fundraise for Rock FM’s local charity, Cash for Kids.

Performing Arts learners kitted out as a range of iconic characters including Cinderella, Iron Man, Mr. Incredible and Elsa and Ana from Disney’s Frozen.

Taz Hallmark, 19 (Luigi), John Paul O’Reilly, 17 (Mario), Christopher Forrest, 17 (Mr. Incredible), Matthew McGivern, 18 (Iron Man), Eve Coppersthwaite, 18 (Elsa), Francesca Mullard, 18 (Ana), Chloe Haley, 18 (Moana), Jordan Faber, 18 (Cinderella), Charlotte Hargreaves, 18 (Fairy Godmother).

One particular visit captured the hearts of learners, visiting the home of Rory Curzon Smith who is one of many children that receives support from the local charity.

Putting their musical theatre skills into practice, learners performed ‘You’ve Got a Friend in Me’ from Rory’s favourite film, Toy Story, before saluting him off on his way to school.

Superhero Day aims to bring a smile to children and young people like Rory, honouring their superhero strengths when battling through their day-to-day struggles.

Anne Markland, programme team leader for drama and music, said: “We have been working closely with Rock FM’s Cash for Kids charity for a number of years and we are proud to be involved in their fundraising events.

“Our learners will always do what they can to support the charity and Superhero Day provided them with an inspiring opportunity to give young people in the community the recognition they deserve for their own courage and strength.”

Musical Theatre learners will next showcase their talents on 15/16th June when they bring ‘The Wind in the Willows’ to Preston Guild Hall.
