A team of superheroes from Methlick tested their metal on an inflatable obstacle course and raised over £1,000 for a north-east cancer charity.

The ‘Methlick Marvels’ raised cash for Friends of ANCHOR by taking part in the charity’s ANCHOR Wipeout event which was held in Aberdeen’s Hazlehead Park in August.

The team, which comprised Scott Mitchell, Michael and Claire Fotheringham, Graeme and Emma Tallis, Hugh Robertson, Alex Hall, Karen Campbell and Mick McGrath, all dressed in superhero costumes and scored the winning points total against 27 other teams.

Each of the twelve games involved teams tackling obstacles and inflatables in a bid to score points.

Michael Fotheringham said: “One of our friends, Yvonne Mitchell, is undergoing treatment for cancer and during her time in hospital she received a huge amount of support from Friends of ANCHOR.

“We decided to enter a team for ANCHOR Wipeout and were determined to raise as much as possible.

“Tackling the course was great fun and we must have made for a colourful sight in our superhero outfits.

“The team would like to thank everyone who sponsored us.”
