Superheroes raise thousands for charity

    Tree of Hope

    A ‘motley crew of superheroes’ raised more than £2,000 for Tunbridge Wells-based charity Tree of Hope.

    Iron Man, Captain America and two Bananamen, along with 13 other staff from Infinity Technology Solutions, took part in the Bewl Water dragon boat race event on September 12.

    A spokesman for Infinity said: “The staff went above and beyond.

    “It was a truly motley crew of superheroes. Staff turned out in force to take charge of the dragon boat and help raise more than £2,000 for Tree of Hope.

    “The charity offers hope to the families of sick children who need specialist medical surgery, treatment, therapy and equipment.

    “The 2014 event raised almost £100,000 and the early signs are that 2015 beat that impressive total. More than 1,000 people turned out, many of them in colourful costumes, and helped continue a tradition that began in 1998 and has helped raise more than £2.4 million for the charity.”
