AS if by magic, Bob Wilson appeared!

The dapper-looking Willow Foundation co-founder joined Mr Benn to back a new fundraising drive.

A series of charity pin badges featuring the popular 1980s cartoon character have gone on 'sale' at branches of Barclays Bank.

Between now and April 20, customers can pick up one or all of the set of four badges in exchange for a donation to Willow.

In case you need reminding - or never watched the cartoon - Mr Benn would visit the fancy dress shop, change into a costume and go off on an adventure - a 'special day'.

And 'special days' are exactly what the Old Hatfield-based Willow Foundation provides, for seriously-ill young adults.
