Emma Downing of Misterton organised the Superheroes and Princesses’ fancy dress fundraiser, to help the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Emma’s son Liam, five, has diabetes and did a sponsored swim last year to help the charity.

The Belton Pavilion party with bouncy castle, disco and games was enjoyed by young revellers from across the Isle.

Emma said: “A massive thank you to all my little helpers and everyone from around the Isle who helped with donations of raffle prizes and equipment.

“The aim was first and foremost to raise awareness for the life threatening condition that we and so many others live with, and to help to ultimately find that cure that we all dream of for our loved ones.”
