A variety of caped crusaders from across the county came together to take on the KAPOW! Superhero Challenge - an inflatable assault course filled with foam and giant obstacles to bounce over, squeeze through and slip and slide on.

The event, which took place on June 17, also saw participants compete in golf tournaments, enjoy food and refreshments from the on-site bar, and play to win a range of prizes from the charity’s wheel of fortune.

The event raised some £10,100 for the charity.

Annette Ablewhite, events officer at Magpas Air Ambulance, said: “We were delighted to see so many people fully embrace the superhero theme and come together to support our very first obstacle challenge.
