Saints fans can go the extra mile this March in support of Sport Relief 2016.

Sport Relief is back from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th March and there are more ways than ever for you to take part, change lives and feel proud. 

Whether you get sponsored to run, swim or cycle at the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games or fundraise with friends and family at home, work or school you’ll help people living incredibly tough lives. 

In fact, half of all the money raised by the public is spent right here at home in the UK, with the other half used to make a difference in the world’s poorest communities.

Sport Relief 2016 will be the Premier League’s eighth Sport Relief as an Official Partner and, in that time, they’ve donated millions to help support projects both here in the UK and all around the world. They are a fantastic partner to Sport Relief.

Sport Relief money supports projects like Garage Youth Centre. Based in Totton, they use Sport Relief cash to provide a safe, supervised place for young people, from deprived areas, to meet and socialise. 

Run by qualified Youth Community Workers, their Health and Wellbeing Service gives those attending the centre advice and guidance on a range of issues, from mental and physical health to lifestyle choices.

The Garage Youth Centre is just one of over 2,000 projects across the UK that is funded by Sport Relief. If you like to walk, run, swim or cycle and think you could help to make a difference, sign up to the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games. There are over 1,000 events across the UK, including a number locally.
