Ava Spowage didn’t want to attend her school, Willow Primary in Bessacarr’s super hero dress up day in just any old costume.

She decided to make her very own unique design.

The eight year old from Auckley wanted to become a beacon of kindness and so wrote messages all over her cape to put a smile on people’s faces.
