The Wave 105 Cash for Kids team are thrilled to announce that following its superhero fundraising day more than £10,000 was raised for disadvantaged children across the south.

Wave 105 Cash for Kids joined forces with a host of Tesco Express stores, schools, businesses and Wave 105 listeners across Dorset and Hampshire who all dug out their best superhero fancy dress to help fundraise and support the initiative.

Wave 105 Cash for Kids charity manager, Gloria Hill, added: “We are totally overwhelmed by the support we received for our first ever Cash for Kids Superhero Day – it was a huge success!

“We all had a fantastic time donning our fancy dress and our presenters also made a huge effort. We had Super Ted, Batman and Mighty Mouse out on the road across the area visiting those who were fundraising.”

Wave 105 Cash for Kids believes that all children across the region should have the chance to live life to the full and reach their individual potential. The charity supports thousands of children from birth to 18 years old who are ill, disabled, underprivileged or who simply need extra care and guidance. This is done by providing grants to individual children, other children’s charities, community groups and health organisations. Last year Wave 105 Cash for Kids raised more than £520,000 locally and touched the lives of up to 17,000 children.
