Sport Relief is just around the corner and this year you have a choice between doing your bit for charity on land or in the water.

Sudbury is set to host its second Sport Relief Mile on Sunday, March 20. You can walk or run the mile, which takes place at the sports pitch at the Delphi Centre in Newton Road at 11am.

A spokeswoman from Sudbury Town Council said: “The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile in Sudbury is here and it’s your time to walk or run yourself proud.

“From little ones with their mums and dads, to runners up against the clock there’s something for everyone to make themselves feel proud on this special day.”

Hadleigh Pool & Leisure and Kingfisher Leisure Centre has once again agreed to take part in the Swimathon challenge to raise funds for Sport Relief.

In Hadleigh there will be two dedicated Swimathon sessions on Saturday, March 19, at 12pm and 4pm.

In Sudbury there will be two sessions starting at 6.30am on Friday, March 18, and 5.30pm on Saturday, March 19.

You can choose to swim from 1.5k, 2.5k or 5k individual distances.

For those who prefer a team challenge, you could also form a relay squad to tackle the 1.5k and 5k distances.

Kelly Blackburn, operation’s manager at Hadleigh Pool & Leisure said: “The Sport Relief Swimathon is a fantastic way to bring our community together, while providing ample opportunity to get fit and healthy in the pool.”

Half of all the money raised by the public for Sport Relief is spent here in the UK, with the other half used to make a difference in the world’s poorest communities.
