5 young superheroes
issued challenge by Merseyside's Chief Constable
MERSEYSIDE Police Chief Constable, Andy Cooke, on Friday, 5 May, challenged 5 young
superheroes to find the villain Winter Soldier, who is said to have been in
Liverpool, as part of Radio City's'Cash for Kids Superhero Day.'
Chief Constable lent to the his support the radio station's campaign, by
briefing the youngsters on their task at Merseyside Police HQ.
All the money raised will from this event go to the:- 'When you Wish upon a
Star' who make dreams come true for sick children and their families.
After being issued with their challenge the children were each designated a
special vehicle, including supercars and an open top bus, to help them carry
out the heroics with the help of a parent.
Chief Constable Andy Cooke said:- "I was absolutely delighted to be
asked to take part in Superhero Day for such a good cause. It was a
privilege to spend time speaking with these brave youngsters and their
families, and great fun to issue them with a challenge. Henry, Jack, Logan,
Nancy and Ryan are a credit to their families and, in my opinion, they are
superheroes every day of the year. 'When you Wish upon a Star' does great
work making the dreams of children come true and the force has enjoyed being
a part of making that happen."
The superheroes were waved off from Police Headquarters, by the Chief
Constable and Police and Crime Commissioner for Merseyside Jane Kennedy,
escorted by a Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service Fire Appliance.
