A true hero isn’t measured by the size of his strength, but by the size of his heart.” – Zeus We are delighted to launch Sunnybank Superhero Week on 1st – 6th June.
Throughout the pandemic, we have been inspired by the bravery and stoicism of our Sunnybank members as well as the ongoing support and commitment of our volunteers and community friends.
We have come a long way since the beginning of the pandemic and none of this would have been possible without our very own superheroes.
We start our Sunnybank Superhero week with a sponsored 10k walk as part of the London Vitality Marathon. Sunnybank CEO, Dorothy and Choices Manager, Lesley, will begin their walk at the old site of St. Ebbas hospital in Epsom which is still home to some of our Sunnybank members. On their route, they will be passing some special places along the way that are important to our charity, including St. Barnabas Church, the Sunnybank office as well as some of our member’s homes.
If you would like to support Dorothy and Lesley along the way, you can find their route here.
The next day, Futures Manager, Claire and the Futures group, will be running 10k as a team, celebrating the energy and aspiration of our young members.
To support Dorothy, Lesley and Claire, please visit our JustGiving page.
During Superhero Week we have a lots of themed events planned for our members and will also be broadcasting a special Sunny Sessions radio show where our members and volunteers will share their superpowers with us all.
We are also delighted to be toasting some of our Superhero Volunteers and community friends in the Sunnybank Unsung Hero Awards across our social media channels throughout the bank holiday weekend.
This is for all of the Sunnybank superheroes out there!
