Glasgow Prestwick Airport gets involved with Cash for Kids

Monday 16 May, 21:21 Europe/London

Glasgow Prestwick Airport transformed into caped crusaders to help raise money for the fantastic charity ‘Cash for Kids’ on Friday 13 May for Superhero Day.

Cash for Kids Superhero day saw supporters dress up, fundraise and donate with all the money raised staying in the local community in which it was raised.

Staff from Glasgow Prestwick Airport pulled together their creative sides and came up with some quirky fundraising ideas. You could also donate in order to receive a homemade superhero eye mask or simply have your picture taken with one of our very own Superhero’s.

A popular game was the Superhero strength challenge. Passengers would donate in exchange to guess the weight in the suitcase for a chance to win a superhero towel.

Another popular activity was our #superheroselfie seeing passengers post their ‘selfies’ onto our Facebook and Twitter page using the hashtag above. Here is one of our favourites with West FM’s Michael Smith and Jen Imrie.

Michael and Jen spent the day driving around South Ayrshire in their Superhero Truck dressed as Batman and Wonder Women interviewing schools and businesses who were on a mission to raise money for Cash for Kids. Jen had also completed a bungee jump off of the Titan Crane in Glasgow in aid for the charity that morning and raised over £300. Well done Jen!

The total raised by Glasgow Prestwick Airport was £182.28! We would like to thank everyone who helped with our fundraising and everyone who also got involved to make it a ‘Super Superhero Day’.
