Fantastic fundraising for Sport Relief

Yesterday was Sport Relief, and as of last night an incredible £38 million had been raised for charitable causes. The event helps vulnerable people in the UK and around the world, and thanks to the extraordinary fundraising achievements of people all over the country, this year’s Sport Relief once again looks set to change lives. Since the last Sport Relief event in 2016, money raised has treated over 900,000 people across Africa with anti-malarial drugs, helped over 3.4 million people in Africa through maternal, neonatal and child health funding, and helped more than 50,000 people in the UK living with a mental health problem. I know that fundraising events took place all over the constituency, in schools, businesses, communities and beyond, and I would like to congratulate everyone who raised money for this fantastic cause for their brilliant efforts. You really have made a difference to so many people.
