Sport Relief is back - and Sainsbury’s Edenthorpe is going the extra mile to help customers and their colleagues fundraise.

All in aid of the first-ever Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games, there will be an event taking place at Balby Carr Doncaster and a range of new merchandise is now on sale at the Edenthorpe store.

The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games take place from Friday 21-Sunday 23 March and the public can join in the fun by running, swimming or cycling their way to raising cash at over a thousand venues around the country.

At Balby Carr Doncaster local residents can participate in a run.

Fundraising activities at the Edenthorpe store also include colleagues showing their super-human dance moves as they perform a Sport Relief flashmob on March 21.

Colleagues across Sainsbury’s stores will be involved in the nationwide flashmob dance to help generate further funds for Sport Relief.

Sainsbury’s Chief Executive Justin King is also getting set to take part in his own Sport Relief Mile challenge. Justin is hoping to beat his previous fundraising total of £70,000 when he runs with over 1,000 colleagues between Wednesday 19th and Sunday 23rd March.

Colleagues from Sainsbury’s Edenthorpe and Store Manager Jon Cox will be running alongside Justin at the Doncaster Race Course on Thursday 20th March, with the exact location still to be confirmed.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to meeting Doncaster Colleagues as I get set for my final Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile Challenge, ending in a run, swim and cycle in London Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park on Sunday 23rd March. The commitment from our colleagues to raise funds in previous years has been incredible and they really do go the extra mile”.

Looking good when taking part in the Doncaster Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games or other sporting activities has also never been easier with the exclusive range of Sport Relief merchandise available in stores this year, which includes the official Sport Relief t-shirt, priced at just £10.
