The money raised will help to take on some of the biggest issues right here in the UK and around the world, from tackling homelessness to championing mental health.

On Tuesday 10th March, the staff from ADAVIRTUAL Business Support joined thousands of fundraisers across the nation in kick-starting their support for Sport Relief.

As a small local company based at Worth Corner Business Centre they were keen to get involved and raise funds. The staff decided to host a lunch break quiz and invite other companies to join them whilst dressed in their best sporty outfits. Cakes and entry to the sweepstake were also on sale to boost the funds raised.

Ada Obi, Managing Director of ADAVIRTUAL, says:

“We are a small business but we are always keen to expand our support for good causes. This is our first time supporting Sport Relief but last year we helped raise money for Children In Need and local charity Chailey Heritage Foundation. The plan is to continue supporting such great causes wherever we can”.

Speaking of their efforts, Sian Curtis-Golds, Business Development Executive said:

“It’s so exciting to be involved in this year’s Sport Relief campaign and a fantastic opportunity for companies in our building to get-together and raise money for such a brilliant cause. We would like to say a huge thank you to all those who came along! It was great fun and knowing that we’ve made difference is a fantastic feeling.”

This year, Sport Relief is encouraging the nation to get their kit on to tackle issues such as child poverty, homelessness, domestic abuse and mental health stigma. Sport Relief week will culminate in an unmissable night of live TV from Salford on Friday 13th March on BBC One.
