The Family Blogger Network do Sport Relief

By Money Matters Team 28/03/2014

Thank you to the bloggers who got involved in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games, raising cash to help transform the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people both in the UK and around the world.

All across the country they took part in running, swimming, football tournaments and scooter races and still found the energy to take some photographs for us. Thank you!

Tracy's children staged their own Sport Relief event with a cartwheel-a-thon, a scooter race, a cross country run and a penalty shoot out. See the full event at White Lily Green, Sainsbury's Sport Relief.

Children supporting Sport Relief

Kara took on the Bournemouth leg of the Team Honk relay while her children cheered her on. Her son, Sebastian, also swam through a hoop for the first time for Sport Relief. See his pictures at Chelsea Mamma, an underwater adventure.

And finally, Knitty Mummy led an outdoor Zumba class at Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol.

Again, thank you for all your efforts.

How is the money spent?

The cash raised for Sport Relief is spent by Comic Relief to help change lives. That’s because Comic Relief uses the money raised by the public to fund projects helping extremely vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the UK and around the world. Two such projects are Railway Children, which provides safe accommodation for children living on the streets in India, and Calderdale Wellbeing in the UK, which tackles mental health discrimination and stigma in schools.

Sport Relief is an initiative of Comic Relief, registered charity 326568 (England/Wales); SC039730 (Scotland). The donation for merchandise we provided has been paid by Sainsbury’s.
