IT’S not quite The Avengers, but a hospice is looking for heroes of another kind to raise charity funds.

Men with comic-book fantasies are being urged to get the superhero look by donning their snazziest underwear as part of St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Load of Pants event.

The five-mile sponsored walk will take place in Nowton Park on July 8 and fund-raisers must show off their pants over trousers or tights.

The event gives men a chance to show their charitable side as St Nicholas Hospice’s Girls’ Night Out event gears up.

Aaron Bridgeforth, social media fund-raiser at the hospice, said it was an opportunity to raise some money and have some fun.

“Some men might feel a bit cut off from the fund-raising effort so this is a chance for them to show what they can do.

“Everyone will be in the same boat so I don’t think anyone will be embarrassed,” he said.

Jenny Baskett, events fund-raiser, said: “We want men from the area to have as much fun as local women do fund-raising for their local hospice.”

To take on the challenge, entrants must be 12 or above and under 17s will need permission from their parents. Entry costs £15.
