North Somerset gears up for Sport Relief

IT COULD be sumo wrestling, a gruelling treadmill marathon or simply pulling on some fancy dress and a wig – what are you doing this year for Sport Relief?

The bi-annual charity fundraising event will take place this week and schools and businesses across North Somerset will be indulging in some kind-hearted shenanigans to raise cash.

There are hundreds of sport relief miles being held across the country on Sunday, with the nearest the flagship mile in Bristol’s Millennium Square and on Weston’s beach.

Our pictures show youngsters at Flax Bourton Primary School, dressed in red, before their run and a fun run held at Grove Sports Centre in Nailsea.
