Tiree’s Sport Relief “S”milers!
On Sunday 21st March, along with thousands across the country, well over 100 Tirisdich turned out to support Tiree’s first ever Sport Relief Mile.
Many came along in fancy dress, entering into the spirit of fun for a worthy cause. Adults, children, firemen and even tots in buggies made their way ‘round the block’, from the school via the mill and back again. Some enthusiasts even went round 2 or 3 times!
A raffle of donated prizes was held in the school gym where the Youth Club also sold cakes and juice with all of the resulting money raised going towards the grand total. On the day the total was just under £1,000 but it now currently stands at £1, 094 which for a small island like this shows how generous and selfless people are when charity calls.
Well done to everyone who took part, donated prizes and money, those who helped beforehand and on the day, to Miss McArthur for the use of the school and to Lynsey who organised it with the help of Sport Relief and Will.
(I would simply like to thank everyone for coming along on the 21st and raising an awesome amount of money for a truly worthy cause. Also can I give a special thank you to all those who came along to
help. Many hands make light work and I hope you all had as much fun as I did. Lynsey)
