Cotswold District runners raised almost �9,000 for Sport Relief

Staff at Cotswold District Council�s dual leisure facilities in Bourton, Chipping Campden, Faiford and Tetbury have just learned that events they staged in the Spring to support Sport Relief have raised almost �9,000.

Each facility staged a Sport Relief mile event over the weekend of 24 and 25 March and, collectively, they attracted 405 participants and raised �8,901 for the charity.

Group Manager Alan Reid was very pleased when the grand total was announced:

�It was a great day and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun - I don�t think I�ve seen so many people in silly costumes in one place. Some participants ran a lot further than a mile because we provided three and six mile circuits too, and I am grateful to everyone who made these events so special.�
