Sport Relief Takes Off This Week

Following our report on John Bishop's Week of Hell, it's good to see a number of  participants from Smiths News will be involved in various Sport Relief activities this coming weekend.

Dave Moore of Central Ops at Wakefield House will be running 5km (just over 3 miles in old money) at the event held at Staffordshire University on Sunday. He has a sponsorship page set up for those of you unable to support him on the day.

Dave says on his page:

I'm doing the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile and taking on 3 miles at The Staffordshire Uni Mile to help people living unimaginably tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world's poorest countries.

Which is where you come in... I really need your help to smash my fundraising target! And since you're already here, looking so kind and generous, I'm very much hoping you'll sponsor me now.

Thank you for all your support - and feel free to give yourself a big pat on the back!

Meanwhile in Swindon on the same day, Nicola Hewlett, Rebecca Hedges and Rachel Cook will be running the Sport Relief Mile with their dogs! Others from Wakefield House will be joining them, so we're expecting to have the full who's who very soon :)

Do let us know ASAP if you're planning to take part in Sport Relief this weekend (use the Publicity Form) and we'll aim to publicise your activities/sponsorship pages in another participant feature!

We'll have a news round-up of how everyone got on, pictures and a running total (groan!) of the amount raised later on in Dispatches.
