Batman flies in to make kids happy

A visit from a super-hero at the Tweed City Shopping Centre has sparked interest in next week’s McHappy Day at Tweed City.

But this was no flying visit. Batman was more than happy to pose for photos and see the kids smiling.

“It’s great to see all the kids smiling when they see Batman walking along. I mean, it’s not every day that you’d come across this,” Batman said.

“I’m here to promote the charity event for Ronald McDonald Charity House.

“The appearances I make are for the children and for the charity and it also gives me an opportunity to wear the suit,” he said.

“I wore my first Batman suit when I was four, so I know that I can help these kids go down the right track and teach them to help somepeople out.”

The Ronald McDonald Charity House is affiliated with many programs for helping sick children and families cope with long stays in hospital, even helping children catch up on their studies post-hospital.

McHappy Day, next Saturday, November 14, raises funds for the Ron- ald McDonald House charities.

On the day, customers at Tweed City McDon- alds will be served by members of the Gold Coast Titans, and there will also be face-painting, colouring competitions and fire truck tours, as well as a raffle with prizes including mp3 players, a RipStick skateboard and a signed Titans football.

The proceeds from the day will come from the introduction of the “Crazy Straw” and $1 from every Big Mac sold.
