Go the extra mile for charity at Bourton

Cotswold Leisure Bourton will do its bit for charity next month when it hosts the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile.

Manager Jo Whitfield is calling runners of all abilities to come along to centre, in Station Road, to take part in a sponsored one, three or six-mile charity run on Sunday March 16th.

Jo said: “We've taken part in Sport Relief for the past three years and are delighted that Cotswold Leisure Bourton has been selected to host this exciting event again.
“We're looking forward to seeing hundreds of residents join in the fun by getting sponsored and raising money for Sport Relief.”

The race will be run round the grounds of the Cotswold School, which shares the Station Road site, from 10am-1pm.

Anyone keen to take part should visit www. sportrelief.com/themile for the latest race details and to sign up.

Sport Relief – which this year will organise over 200 events across the UK – has raised £50 million for charity since first being formed in 2002.
Sport Relief is a spin-off of national charity drive Comic Relief, which helps poverty-stricken people in the UK and around the world.
