Superhero Window Cleaners – level 3

Superhero Window Cleaners – level 3

22-07-2016 07:00

There's not much fun about being in hospital unless you're at St. Thomas's and these three turn up. Window cleaners by day, superheroes by night! Let's hope a head for heights is one of their superpowers, as they'll be dangling on this rope six floors above the ground!

"Let's go make some children smile!"

In the ward, word has spread about the super arrivals.

"Lizzy, who do you think's going to be coming down past the window? Do you think it's going to be Superman?"

And it's not just the children that enjoy themselves. 

"It's fantastic when they look up. This is my son. He loves Spiderman. If he had been in hospital, not well, that would have just made his day. It would actually just make his day. And if we can go on tonight and one child has put a smile on their face, it's all probably been worth it."

After a few super selfies, it was time for our heroes to disappear into the night. Or just back to the day job!

Difficult words: ward (a section of a building), word has spread (people are talking about something), selfie (take a picture of yourself with someone or something), day job (a normal job).
