Sport Relief is back! And this year we’re delighted to announce that Sported will be helping to make it the biggest, boldest and best event ever.
From the 17th to 23rd March 2018, the nation will be coming together for a week of epic activity to get people active, raise money and help change lives here in the UK and across the world.
As part of the celebrations, Sport Relief has partnered with Sported to help youth groups plan their own fundraising activities. The charities have teamed up to create a youth group fundraising pack, chock-full of tips and suggestions to get them started.
Sported will be promoting the Sport Relief fundraising packs to its membership network of over 3,000 community groups across the UK. So whether it’s organising a five-a-side tournament, dance-athon or classic Sports Day, Sported is challenging its members to showcase their skills by putting on an event to raise money and bring the local community together.
Kathryn Berry, Head of Member Services at Sported, said: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Sport Relief 2018. Sported’s members are the experts when it comes to getting young people moving and using sport to bring local communities together. That’s why we are asking for their support to make Sport Relief 2018 the biggest, most exciting and inclusive fundraising event ever!”
Sport Relief brings the nation together to get active, raise money and change lives. Since 2002, Sport Relief has raised over £335 million. The money raised by the public will be spent by Comic Relief to tackle the critical issues affecting people across the UK and the world. This year, Sport Relief culminates in a week of activity from Saturday 17th to Friday 23rd March, leading to an unmissable night of TV on the BBC.
