Fancy trying skydiving? St Andrew's Hospice looking for group of superheroes to help raise money
IS it a bird? Is it a plane?
Nope, it's a charity skydiver!
St Andrew's Hospice is looking for a group of superheroes to take part in the UK's highest skydive.
The charity hopes to get 30 intrepid volunteers to jump from 15,000ft to mark Children's Hospice Week while dressed as superheroes.

One of last year's participants, Micheal Kaus, 56, a stevedore from Immingham, said: "The experience is out of this world. It's something I always wanted to do and was able to do it for a really good cause.
"The Hospice always needs a lot of funding, they get very little money from the government.
Michael, who dressed as Spiderman for the skydive, added: "They do a lot for the community and I think a lot of people don't even know what the hospice does.
"People should support it as one day they may need it."
The 2013 Superhero Skydive will take place on Sunday, May 19 at Hibaldstow.
Hospice events organiser Angela Greenfield said: "Last year's Superhero Skydive was a fantastic event with 11 intrepid heroes who between them raised more than £10,000 for the Hospice. Most participants said that it was the experience of a lifetime.
"Our oldest participant last year was a 75 year old lady who did the jump in memory of her husband, which proves that anyone can do it."
This year, there are 30 places available on the tandem jump, which allows you to enjoy an adrenalin-fuelled free fall harnessed to a British Parachute Association qualified instructor.
This means that you need only a short 20 minute briefing before you take to the skies and you have the security of knowing that it is the instructor who opens and lands the parachute so that you can relax and enjoy the thrill.
Participants must pledge to raise a minimum of £400 and pay a £100 deposit on registration.
The Skydive is open to anyone over the age of 16 and there is no upper age limit. Participants aged 16 and 17 must have a consent form signed by a parent or guardian and those who are aged 40 or over, or who have a pre-existing medical condition must have a British Parachute Association Medical Form signed by a doctor.
There is also a maximum weight limit of 16st.
