Two Fowlmere hairdressers pounded country lanes in the pouring rain dressed as Batman and Bananaman on Saturday to raise money for baby charity, Bliss.

Sian Treadwell and her boss Amy Johnson-Smith walked from Aquarius Hair Design in Manor Farm to the Rosie Hospital NICU, where they delivered baby blankets and other items knitted by clients.

“We are so very proud of ourselves. We literally got soaked through our superhero costumes and our trainers were full of water.

“We cannot believe the amazing support we have had and the generosity of others.

“Pubs en route were extremely welcoming.
