A MICRO renewable company has used its superpowers to raise money and awareness for a children’s charity.

Green Moray Renewables came to the rescue of Cash For Kids and donned Teenage Mutant Ninja Hero outfits to take part in the cause’s Superhero Day on Friday (May 15).

Graham Meacher owner of the firm based at the Greshop Industrial Estate in Forres explained why they wanted to take part in the event: “We have been in business for almost two years now and we have been looking at opportunities to do some work with the community. We thought as a starting point this is a great charity but also good fun. We are a small family-run business and Cash For Kids struck a chord as I have children, so could easily identify with what the charity does and who it is aimed at.”

He added: “We like that the money raised from the event will also stay within this region.”

Cash For Kids provides a helping hand to disabled and disadvantaged children around the Highlands, Moray and Aberdeenshire.

On Friday morning, the team from Green Moray Renewables worked from their base and were visited by MFR’s breakfast host Ginno Conti and Allana Mackay, Cash For Kids charity executive.

In the afternoon they hot footed it round to the Forres branch of Tesco and Costa to entertain shoppers.

Graham in true Ninja style said: “Kowabunga baby, we don’t yet know what we have raised as MFR Cash for Kids will do the counting, but it was a great afternoon. The shoppers were digging deep and seemed amused by our superhero presence. Thanks to Tesco and Costa for letting us use their premises.”
