Sport Relief 2010

Not content with moving houses and mountains, OH and A are running their Sport Relief mile this Sunday at 11AM.

As one of the UK's biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives.

The Sport Relief Weekend is taking place from Friday 19th March to Sunday 21st March 2010 and it'll be three whole days of energy, entertainment and events for everyone to enjoy. And, the best bit is, all the cash raised helps people living incredibly tough lives both at home in the UK and across the world’s poorest countries.

The money that we raise will help people leading incredibly difficult lives, including children like 8 year old Sapna who lives in Delhi, India. Sapna has to work because her mum is ill and her dad died when she was younger. She sells vegetables in a local market but sometimes she used to lose her money as she had nowhere safe to keep it. Life has been made easier for Sapna by a project called ‘Butterflies’. With Sport Relief funding they run a bank so that children like Sapna can keep their money safe. This security means that Sapna can help her family and save for a much brighter future.

If you would like to view a video explaining why Sport Relief is important go here and to see how your money works go here.

So far they have raised a staggering £265!!!!!!! Well done OH and A and of course, a massive THANK YOU is due to all who sponsored them. There is still time to sponsor them so go to www.mysportrelief.com/darrenandalfie to donate.
