Caped crusader Captain Manchester visited the pupils at Fairfield Road Primary School in Droylsden as part of Anti-Bullying Week.

The community champion was created as part of a guerilla marketing campaign for the charity "Forever Manchester". He made the headlines recently for random acts of kindness including giving food to the homeless,handing out umbrellas in bad weather and paying parking fines.

Just before his visit the pupils were shown articles and you tube clips about his goodwill and acts of kindness then, to the theme of Rocky,Captain Manchester appeared out of a cloud of smoke. The children then asked him why he does what he does and he spoke of what he thinks the school could do for the people of Tameside.

Georgina Johnstone,year two teacher,said "It was fantastic,the pupils came up with ideas for their own acts of kindness from picking up litter to carrying shopping bags to handing out free cake, there was a real buzz around the school all day".

As he was departing Captain Manchester said he would re-visit the school to see how they were getting on with their acts of kindness.
