Bargeddie was on a mission, a mission to raise funds for children’s charity Radio Clyde Cash for Kids. It was clearly a job for a superhero…and they certainly did not disappoint.
The Superhero Day attracted Superman, Wonderwoman, Spiderman, Batman, Daredevil and Captain America along with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, the Incredible Hulk and Banana Man.
The heroes from the Viridor Logistics Unit in Bargeddie washed an incredible 102 cars and really cleaned up in the fundraising stakes to collect the fantastic total of £1,050 which will go a long way to helping local children living in poverty.
Viridor Bargeddie Logistics Unit Manager said he was “completely overwhelmed” by the response from his team who jumped at the chance to join Radio Clyde in an effort to raise much-needed funds for the children’s charity.
“Natalie Long and Katie Colquhoun attended a special corporate breakfast with Clyde 1 Bowie at Breakfast team and done a great job promoting our Superhero Car Wash on the radio and the real heroes of the car wash fundraiser were: Captain America John Ward, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Scott Spence, Spiderman Derek Paterson and Banana Man Alex Mathewson.
“These four washed so many cars – they didn’t stop. It was incredible effort which made us so proud.”
Cash for Kids spokesman Grace Wilson said: “We are so grateful to receive this marvellous support from John Templeton and his team of Viridor Superheroes. The money raised will go a long way to support local children who are living in poverty by providing food and activities throughout the school summer holidays.”
