Children in Chester and Ellesmere Port schools will be taking part in sporting events on Friday (March 18) in aid of this year's Sport Relief.

Pupils at St Oswald's CE Primary School in Mollington will be making a donation to wear their sports kits all day and will be taking part in a variety of skipping activities led by teacher Caroline Jones.

Caroline said: "We will be using Sport Relief as a teaching opportunity so that our children can learn about issues children across the world face and how the money we raise can help them."
