MILES were run and colourful clothes worn as Herefordshire did its bit for Sport Relief.

Hereford Academy raised £1361.05 after holding a number of activities all week.

This included a "lost" challenge that involved teachers Jane Hossack, Kyle O'Connor and Emily Fussey navigating their way back to the schoool from Cheltenham Racecourse with no transport or money.

The trio also had to run the final furlong at the racecourse, take part in a climbing challenge at the Warehouse in Gloucester and have their photograph taken outside John Kyrle High School in Ross-on-Wye.

And year seven pupil Abbie Beardsley-Perkins swapped roles with head of PE Aaron Davies for the day.

Pupils at Shobdon Primary School tested their darts skills with local player and ex-pupil Jim Williams and Harriet Probert wore her sister Libby's Hereford Athletic Club kit and medals at Broadlands Primary School.

Trinity Primary School raised around £520 by running or walking around the school and taking part in a skip-a-thon.

The money will be spilt between Sport Relief and Herefordshire Heartstart and purchasing a defibrillator.

Moor Court Residential Home in Bodenham raised £420 by holding a coffee morning and raffle, selling cakes and holding a "guess how many sweets are in the jar" competition, while staff member Ed Bevan cycled a mile.

A number of people took part in a spin-a-thon at Lady Hawkins' Community Centre in Kington, which raised around £1,500, and children at Peterchurch Primary School paid £1 to wear sports clothes on Friday.

Youngsters at Orleton Primary School also played wheelchair basketball and blind football as part of a disability awareness day.
