As promised by the organisers, the shopping centre will become a “superhero training ground”, where participants will be able to visit five different “action-packed” stops each of which featuring a unique “engaging activity”.

On Wednesday, 29th May, a “superhero academy” hosted by NYCC will give children a chance to hone their skills further, master dance moves, attend boxing sessions, create their own bracelet or keyring and have their faces painted.

Joe Katona, centre manager at Edmonton Green, said: “We’re thrilled to partner with the NYCC for this exciting event. 

“The Half Term Heroes Adventure is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate our community spirit and raise awareness for the incredible work the NYCC does.”
