Superheroes, movie stars and celebrities turned up to celebrate Easter at a children’s charity event.

Snow white, Iron Man and Darth Vader joined 75 children at the Marriott Hotel in Waltham Abbey for the Dream Factory Easter Party.

‘Allo ‘Allo actress Vicki Michelle and former world featherweight boxing champion Colin McMillan were also in attendance to hand out the 500 Easter eggs donated for Thursday's event.

Avril Mills, founder of Dream Factory which fulfils wishes for terminally ill children, said: “I loved listening to the children come onto the dance floor to sing.

“It was an amazing party and yet another good memory for the children and their families.”
