Colleagues and customers from Sainsbury’s Bexleyheath will be getting active and raising money for Sport Relief 2018.

Sainsbury’s will be leading the charge with colleagues stepping up as part of Team Sport Relief.

Over the next few weeks, Sainsbury’s colleagues all over the UK will be working hard to raise money for the national fundraising event, which will conclude with a week packed full of in store activity.

Activities at the Bexleyheath store will include colleagues dressed in sports gear, and other challenges will help to meet the one billion steps challenge.

This year, Sport Relief is challenging the nation to come together to walk one billion steps a day, every day from March 17 to 23, counting their steps through the brand new Sport Relief App.

To help the nation keep track of their hard earned steps and ensure they count towards the national total, the App will be available to download for free.

Packed with innovative challenges, exclusive celebrity content and a national step tracker* to keep count towards the billion, it will also include countless ways to get active and raise money for the cause.

Mani Powar, store manager, said: “Our colleagues love getting involved with Sport Relief fundraising and we’re all really proud to support such a great cause.

“There are some brilliant activities planned this year and we look forward to inviting customers to join in with the fun.”

Sainsbury’s shoppers can now pick up the official Sport Relief merchandise in store to support the charity.

This year, items include wristbands, pin badges, deeley boppers, water bottles and much more.

Customers can also win great prizes by buying a £1 scratchcard in store – with all proceeds going to Sport Relief.

Sainsbury’s has supported Comic Relief since 1999, and thanks to the support of customers and colleagues, has managed to raise more than £115 million for the charity to date.

Sport Relief, which never fails to bring the nation together to get active to raise money to change lives, will this year culminate in a week of activity from Saturday 17th to Friday 23rd March, before the unmissable night of TV on the BBC.
