MARVEL heroes and Disney princesses are fighting together to lift the pandemic blues for children during lockdown - and to raise funds for Glan Clwyd Hospital.

Former Rhyl High schoolmates Maddie Jones and Erika Jones, 22 and 24, are recording free special videos messages for children dressed as some of their favourite characters including Snow White and Spiderman.

While Maddie self isolates with partner Blake Jones - who also plays characters - pageant competitor Erika is currently working as a key worker in a care home five days a week.

Maddie, who studies Events Management at Coleg Llandrillo, said: "This all started because me and my friend Erika decided to set up a princess party business, but due to the Coronavirus, we had to put it on hold.

"But we wanted to still spread some magic and make light of this situation, so we thought we would start video messages.

"We’ve had around 300 requests in the first two to three days which is amazing.

"They’re personalised messages from different princesses and superheroes just to say hello and tell them what we’re doing in isolation - for example, superhero training - just to make the whole situation not seem so scary.

"We’re doing these for free, but we are accepting donations to split between three charities that mean a lot to us - Glan Clwyd Cancer Unit,

Headway Brain Injury and the National autistic society."

From 11am on Tuesday, April 7, Maddie and partner Blake Jones - who are currently self-isolating together in Abergele- are presenting a live stream entertainment in character as Frozen's Anna and Kristoff.

Blake said: "Since our characters are so highly requested, we have decided to do a live video on Facebook for those still waiting for messages, or for children just to say hello to them again.

There will be story telling, singing and a chance for the children to talk to us

"We are telling people that they can add Maddie’s profile so they don’t miss it."
