AN entourage of superheros on motorised scooters rolled into Woodman Point last weekend on their journey to fight children’s cancer.

The Superkids Superheroes is an annual 10-day scooter ride from Bridgetown to the Perth’s Children Hospital to fundraise for The Kids Cancer Project.

Now in its third year, the event was created for Bridgetown eight-year-old Declan Kane, who sadly lost his battle with neuroblastoma last year.

The Lions Club of Jandakot Lakes replenished the superheroes with dinner and breakfast at Woodman Point Discovery Park before they set off for the last leg of their journey to the Perth Children’s Hospital.

Lions Club of Jandakot Lakes secretary Stephen Berry said they were happy to help out the cause in a small way.

“The members of the club where grateful for being able to contribute in a personal way by providing meals for the fundraisers of such a worthwhile cause,” he said.

“We are all volunteers and enjoy doing the fundraising that we do, but it is when we can be involved in some small way in this type of project that we really appreciate how well off we are.”
