Sport Relief 2016 Success
The Melton Mile RAISES £1562.35 FOR SPORT RELIEF
Earlier this year, the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile in Melton Mowbray saw local people running one, three or six miles in aid of Sport Relief. The money has been counted up and The Melton Mile raised a total of £ 1562.35
This year's Sport Relief was a record breaking year with the campaign raising a total of £72.5 million. The money raised will help disadvantaged people living incredibly tough lives, across the UK and the world's poorest communities.
Sarah Milner, Physical Activity Development Officer for Melton Borough Council and Mile Organiser 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."
