15th March 2018 





Dear Parents/Carers,


At St Andrew’s School we are all really excited to be taking part in Sport Relief 2018! As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise money and change lives.


This year, Sport Relief will be taking place in schools and nurseries between Monday 19th March and Friday 23rd March.


To do our bit and raise money we will be encouraging children to participate in a daily sports challenge:


  • Monday lunchtime: Hula hoop challenge
  • Tuesday lunchtime: Skip-a-thon
  • Wednesday lunchtime: Shoot out/footie
  • Thursday lunchtime: Boogie/dance off
  • Friday afternoon: St Andrew’s School Winter games!


And, the best thing is, the money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world's poorest countries. To learn more about how Comic Relief spends the money raised for Sport Relief please visit sportrelief.com/schools.


On Friday 23rd March your child may bring £1 to school to wear a sports kit of their choice. Also during break times next week your child will be able to choose to buy a Sports Relief wristband for £1. These donations will all go to the good work of Sports Relief.


We really appreciate your support and hope that you’ll have fun helping our school raise lots of money for Sport Relief!


Yours faithfully,



Mrs Shirra
