IS it a bird? Is it a plane?

 No, it’s staff from a Sunderland store who are getting their fund-raising off to a flying start.

 Workers from TK Maxx dressed up as their favourite superheroes to encourage shoppers to dig deep for Comic Relief.

 In total 12 superheroes reported for charity duty, including Batman and Robin, Superman and Supergirl and well as the Incredibles.

 Betty Fletcher, TK Maxx team leader, said: “Everybody who gives a little to charity, especially when money is tight, is a hero.

 “We wanted to really emphasise that so the team decided they would give up their usual uniforms and come into work dressed as their favourite superhero.

 “It’s often said, but literally every penny helps so please drop by the store, dig deep and give us any loose change you have.

 “We will have collection buckets in store until March 18 and it really will make a world of difference to the hundreds of children that receive support each and every day from Comic Relief.”

 TK Maxx has been confirmed as an official sponsor of this year’s Comic Relief so the Sunderland store decided to kick start its fund-raising mission early to ensure it collects much need donations for the national charity.
