Sport Relief plea to schools

AN APPEAL has been made to schools in the Dispatch district to get involved with the upcoming nationwide fundraising initiative, Sport Relief.

Teachers can sign up for a resource pack that offers fundraising ideas, posters, balloons and stickers.

There is also information on where the money is spent.

As part of the annual event, local schools are being urged to hold their own versions of the Sport Relief mile on Friday March 23.

The mile is the key attraction of Sport Relief. Those taking part can complete it in any way they like, whether running, skipping or dancing.
