Earlier this year, the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile, which took place at St Nicholas Park in Warwick on 20th March 2016, saw local people running one, three or six miles in aid of Sport Relief. The money has been counted up and the Warwick Sport Relief Mile organised by Regency Runners raised a total of £6643.77.
This year’s Sport Relief was a record breaking year with the campaign raising a whopping £72.5 million. The money raised will help disadvantaged people living incredibly tough lives, across the UK and the world’s poorest communities.
Tina James, a leader at Regency Runners, said “We are delighted with the total amount of money we have raised this year. It’s brilliant to have been part of such a successful Sport Relief year and know that we are helping to make a difference to people’s lives.”
Jess Kirke, Events Manager at Comic Relief, said, “We want to say a huge thank you to all of our local mile organisers. They work tirelessly to organise successful events up and down the country and we are truly grateful for all their efforts and hard work – Sport Relief wouldn’t be the event it is without them.”
