Something a little different today, we want to introduce you to I am Super Capes, a fabulous set up which sends capes to childrenÂ around the world to make them feel like superheros. The charities supported are variedÂ – from a group of volunteers who support asylum seekers and refugees in the Southampton area to The Red Cross Children’s Hospital in Cape Town.Â Every child deserves to be a superhero, no matter who they are, where they live, whatever they are going through. They deserve the right to be a childÂ andÂ to have some time to get away from the stress of their situation.
