SPORT RELIEF: Pupils at the Federation of Mowden Schools, in Darlington, raised more than £6,000 for this year’s Sport Relief appeal by gathering sponsorship to take part in the Sport Relief mile and attending school dressed as their sporting hero. Alison Cockerill, speaking on behalf of the school, said: “We raise money for different events but this is a very high figure. We wanted people to know what the kids have achieved and thank their families and friends for their donations.”
