Superman and Spiderman visit Epsom on charity mission
Comic superheroes Spiderman and Superman joined forces to help out at an Epsom school this week.
The Marvel heroes visited St Martin's Infant School in Worple Road as part of a hitchhiking tour of the UK, to raise money for muscular dystrophy charity Duchenne Now.
The dynamic duo set off from Manchester and have been catching lifts from members of the public in a bid to cover 1,000 miles and raise thousands of pounds.
But unlike the real Spiderman and Superman, who keep their identities a closely guarded secret, this pair are more than happy to reveal their alter egos to get their message across.
The superheroes also found time to visit Epsom Downs
Ryan "Superman" Mulvey and Scott "Spiderman" Leach want to raise awareness of the work of Duchenne Now, which is campaigning to find a cure for a form of muscular distrophy that affects thousands of children and young people in the UK.
Ryan said: “The children facing this devastating condition are super human every day and are the real heroes in our eyes.
"100 per cent of the money raised will go to fund vital research into finding a cure for Duchenne’s Muscular Dystophy.”
Children with the muscle-wasting condition are unlikely to survive past the age of 30.
