Runners take part in the Sport Relief Mile on the Isle of Wight. icture by Peter Boam.
HUNDREDS of people descended on Seaclose Park yesterday (Sunday) for the Sport Relief mile.
The sponsored run attracted crowds of people, many in fancy dress, raising money for the national campaign.
Among the runners was Tanya Blake, of sponsors Sainsbury’s, who said: "There was a great atmosphere. Loads of people were in fancy dress."
On Friday, Newport Sainsbury’s staff surprised shoppers with a flashmob dance to a Sport Relief adapted version of the Black Lace song Superman.
Staff and customers worked together to notch up more than 200 miles on exercise bikes — the equivalent of around three times around the Island — loaned by Spinzone.
Other staff took part in a sponsored ride on the Island’s roads over the weekend.
Tanya said: "We are well on our way to raising our target of £5,300."
