Giant inflatables offer chance to be a superhero

St Richard’s Hospice is calling for local superheroes with a sense of adventure to take on a very special challenge in aid of hospice care.

The local charity is inviting people to take part in a celebration event of fun inflatables and foam on Saturday 17th June to celebrate the heroes in their lives.

The event offers the opportunity to have fun with friends, family and colleagues. A thrilling 5km route will include giant inflatable obstacles and foam galore, including a foam bath, bouncy tunnels, giant hammers, UV bubble pods and the grand finale – the Big Bertha drop slide.

The St Richard’s Hospice Superhero Challenge is being kindly sponsored by A44 Tyre Shop, the Worcester based family business that has been keeping cars on the road since the 1960s.

Dan Taylor, Proprietor of A44 Tyre Shop, said; “I first experienced the amazing care and support St Richard’s provides when they cared for my Mum. She and Dad were supported by one of their specialist nurses at home, and later in the In-patient Unit. The care we received as a family was incredible and really made a terrible situation more bearable for us all.

“I am proud that A44 Tyre Shop could get involved with the Superhero Challenge as headline sponsor and support the hospice so that other families can receive similar special care. Our team is looking forward to taking part in the challenge and is already thinking of some tyre related challenges to add some extra fun to the day.”

The event will be held at University of Worcester Lakeside Campus in Holt, with start times available from 10am. Early Bird registration is available until 28th February, with tickets £25 for adults, £20 for under 16 years (please note there is a height restriction of 123cms).
