Sport Relief 2016

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

Schools are being urged to get involved with Sport Relief, which takes place again next year on March 18.

Run by Comic Relief, the event offers schools free fundraising packs with posters, stickers and balloons. The pack also contains curriculum-linked resources to help pupils learn about the difference between their lives and the lives of others.

Last year thousands of schools and nurseries across the country got involved with Sport Relief, from running a sponsored-mile to taking part in a 24 hour badminton tournament. Around £6 million was raised in the process.

Money raised by schools and nurseries will help people living unimaginably tough lives on your doorstep in the UK and across the world's poorest countries.
