    We asked you to let us know what you are doing for Sports Relief. Andy Smith from Our Arleston Community Project has emailed us. (SDN recently took part in the Arleston Access Day)
    Andy says:
    I am going to be cycling from ARLESTON TO LONDON on a STATIONARY GYM BIKE for sport relief starting at 9 am on Friday 21st March 2014 at the Watling centre Arleston TF1 2AB.. The total amount that needs to be cycled is 149 miles and I am hoping that I will have some other people taking part also ranging from local residents to people from different agencies as I will have 2 bikes set up in the hall. Already confirmed to do a few miles during the day are the Arleston Councilor Angela McClements, local CSO Graham Strong and Youth Officer Devon Peart which is fantastic!

    It will be a fantastic day raising money for a great cause! If anyone wants to come and do a few miles please get in touch and let me know. Also if anyone wants to sponsor me and the community of Arleston in this challenge please click on the link below where you can find out more about the challenge and donate if you wish

    Thank you to Andy for letting us know about this. We wish you well. If anyone else is doing something for Sports Relief, please tell us.
