Spider-Man and his gang last year worked hard and made our community smile. They did an outstanding action for our community and raising money for Birmingham children’s hospital.

This is what Spiderman and his Super Heroes said! “We did this because of Alfie in the first place. No one at such a young age should have to go through anything that our little hero Alfie went through.

No matter what the weather was we would go round and put smiles on people’s faces from going round Ashmore Park, Griffiths drive every Thursday, to walking to the Wolves stadium, and back to also raise money for our hero Alfie. Alfie is now in rehabilitation getting back on his feet.”
