SPORT RELIEF is back and once again pupils and teachers from all over Wales will be making every Mile count this March.
Schools across the region are already planning to take part and raise vital cash to help change the lives of vulnerable people here in the UK and across the world’s poorest communities.
For Sport Relief 2014, schools across Wales raised an incredible £230,000 by running, hopping, skipping and jumping their way around a Mile.
Could schools in Wales possibly follow the lead of the Charles Williams Primary School in Caerleon and Maindee Primary School in Newport, who will be limbering up for Sport Relief 2016 and joining forces for a relay between schools with the support of rugby players from the Gwent Dragons.
This year, Comic Relief is challenging schools in Wales to try a new twist on their Mile, from fancy dress to balancing beanbags on their heads.
Teachers can get started by signing up for a free school fundraising kit. It’s full of fundraising ideas, posters, balloons and stickers, as well as learning resources to help pupils understand where the money goes. Just head to sportrelief.com/schools
There are lots of ways to get involved: at school, in the workplace and in the local area. From Friday 18 to Sunday 20 March the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games are back and the whole of Wales will walk, run, swim or cycle itself proud to raise vital cash to help people living incredibly tough lives. In fact, half of all the money raised by the public is spent right here in the UK, with the other half used to make a difference in the world’s poorest communities. Sign up now at sportrelief.com
