Charity: Sport Relief record total revealed

May 28, 2010

This year’s Sport Relief events have raised a record £40,605,054. Thousands of runners joined the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in March which took place in over a hundred places across the United Kingdom.

The money is already being spent by Comic Relief to help underprivileged people in countries around the world as well as in more than 1,000 projects at home. For Sport Relief 2010, the charity has highlighted three issues the money will aid: children who live on the streets or work in dangerous conditions, people affected by malaria and local UK projects.
