Tots from a baby group took part in a heroic mission to help save the lives of fellow infants.

Babies aged up to 13 months dressed in capes, masks and spandex as they took on the personas of their favourite superheroes to raise money for charity Tommy’s, which funds research into stillbirth, premature birth and miscarriage.

The superhero event took place at the North Huddersfield Baby Sensory class at Woodkirk Valley Country Club earlier this month.

Brooke Firth, group franchisee, said: “The Superhero Sensathon was an enormously fun event that encouraged parents and babies to tap in to their inner Batman and raise funds for the research Tommy’s pioneers into the causes and prevention of miscarriage, stillbirth and premature births.”

The Superhero Sensathon was held at baby sensory groups across the country, and raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for the charity.

Jane Brewin, chief executive of Tommy’s, said: “Tommy’s relies on the generosity and hard work of supporters like Baby Sensory to continue its pioneering research.”
