Cringle Park Superhero Stroll Sunday 5th October

Don your cape and get set for the most fun fundraiser around!

Sponsored fancy dress walk for the benefit of St John Ambulance – how many 1km laps of Cringle Park can you and your family complete in 2 hours? What about dressed up as your favourite superhero? Find out Sunday 5th October at the Cringle Park Superhero Stroll! (12.00-14.00)

The idea of the Superhero Stroll is to dress up as your favourite superhero and walk around the park to raise money for St John Ambulance who have their Gtr Mcr HQ on Crossley Rd.. Don’t worry if you can’t reveal your alter ego (you’ll be in good company…Bruce Wayne, Clark Kent, Peter Parker are all forced to lead double lives!) you’ll still be able to take part and if you haven’t time to raise sponsorship then you can make a donation.

Enjoy a great day out with the whole family – the park will open at 10am and visitors can enjoy a funfair with rides and amusements to keep everyone entertained, as well as a variety of stalls offering hair braiding, refreshments & food, and handcrafted cards to name just a few. The emergency services are joining us too and will be giving some dramatic rescue demonstrations and you can also pick up some life saving tips at our first aid demonstrations.

The event is free for everyone to enjoy, but to help us raise vital funds for our life saving work, we are kindly asking strollers to raise a minimum sponsorship amount of 5 pounds (3 for under 16s), or donate the amount upon entering the stroll if you don’t fancy getting sponsored.

An Awards Ceremony will take place at 3pm and the community cohesion event will draw to a close at 4pm.

We look forward to seeing you there!

To pick up your fundraising pack and sponsorship forms, please contact north-west-superhero@sja.org.uk – alternatively, feel free to just turn up on the day!

While the sponsored walk is the focus, there are plenty of other things organised for Sunday in Cringle Park:

– Funfair
– Vintage cars and buses
– Climbing Wall
– Fire engine
– Various stalls
– Matt Holker from The Manchester Ecology Unit will be talking about the wildlife, plants and trees in the park
