A CAPED care worker from the Borders gave up a day's wages to support a local charity.

Greg Edminson flew into his Galashiels office earlier this month dressed as Batman.

The 29-year-old from Jedburgh, who has worked for care company Mears over the past three years, was supporting children's charity Cash for Kids.

Greg told the Border Telegraph: “I spend time with people who need that extra bit of help which enables them to continue to live in their own homes as they get older.

"I really enjoy my job as you are really making a difference every day to other people’s lives."

Cash for Kids Superheroes Day is a vital fundraiser for the charity which is based at Radio Borders' Tweedbank studios.

Superhero Day across the UK this year raised more than £150,000.

Greg's manager at Mears, Karyn Davie, was thrilled with her superhero. She said: "We are so proud of Greg and what he did for others by coming to work on his day off and donating his wages to the Cash for kids appeal for disadvantage kids in the Borders.

"We understand he caused quite a stir amongst local school children who thought Batman had really come to town.”
