Registration ( closes at 5pm Friday 10 April. Register before 23 January for just £20, after this date is will be £25 per person. All superheroes must be aged 13 and over and anyone under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian complete, sign and return the parental consent form.

The aim is to raise a heroic £11,000 which is enough to fund St Catherine’s community care service for an entire day.

Be incredible and set your own A-Team with your colleagues and you can take part in the exclusive corporate superhero Abseil on Friday 17 April.
