Forty staff one from one Brighton firm took part in the Heroes Run yesterday (Sunday 15 May).
The team from the Domestic and General call centre raised more than £1,000 for Passing It On – the Brighton charity linked to the event and which helps to pay for schools to be built in Africa.
The money will go to building a skills centre in Kwinella, one of the Gambia’s poorest areas, where the project needs £125,000.
The call centre staff were among hundreds of runners who dressed up as heroes to take part in the seventh annual charity fundraising run on the seafront.
Superman, Batman and Spiderman were among the more conventional heroes in costumes being sponsored to run 5k and 10k along the prom.
Domestic and General, based in Queen Square, Brighton, paid for the places for each of its 40 staff.
The 18 call centre staff, 11 team leaders and 11 managers dressed up as superheroes including The Hulk, Batgirl and Superman.
Chris Puleston, customer services director operations manager at D&G ran as Batman. He said: “The Heroes Run is such a brilliant event.
“It’s good fun for a great cause and everyone can get involved.
“We’re all pleased to continue to support Passing It On’s fantastic work.”
