Pupils at King’s Ely Acremont used their entrepreneurial skills and superhero powers to raise £60 for Asthma UK.

Year 1 pupils created their own flamboyant superhero capes and ran a superhero café in the school playground.

The children decorated biscuits and cookies, and also made their own posters to promote the event before opening for business to pupils and staff.

Other King’s Ely Acremont pupils and staff made donations in return for refreshments.

Jonathan Willcocks, head of King’s Ely Acremont, said: “The children worked incredibly hard to set up their Superhero Café.
