Superheroes take over BSS head office

Published:  17 July, 2013

A 20-strong gang of masked superheroes took over the BSS Industrial head office in Leicester on 5 July, to raise money for the company’s partner charity Help the Hospices.

The team raised £140 for Help the Hospices, with all funds going to local cause LOROS (the Leicestershire and Rutland Organisation for the Relief of Suffering). First prize went to marketing assistant Philippa Beattie who dressed as the Princess of Power, She-Ra.

Frank Elkins, BSS Industrial managing director, said: “The Superhero Day was another example of the commitment our staff have to our partner charity, from branch to head office. Thank you to all those who took part and managed to complete a working day as their super alter-ego!”
