Children from a Preston-based Hindu community group have dressed up as superheroes to deliver a video thank you message to key workers in the coronavirus pandemic.


The children are from the Friends of BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir Preston, a not-for-profit organisation that works to strengthen society via spiritual values and humanitarian services.

Each child featured in the thank you video dons a homemade cape as they pay tribute to workers from the NHS, fire service, police service, care sector, supermarkets, schools and recycling centres.
