Chester MP Stephen Mosley has made £100 for a local Sport Relief charity by winning the Parliamentary Pedal Challenge.

Stephen completed the challenge in 54.7 seconds, beating every other MP and peer who took part.

Sport Relief, which takes place every two years, is part of Comic Relief, a charity that supports those in need both here in the UK and around the world.

Stephen is now encouraging everyone to support Sport Relief’s fundraising.

He said: “One of the fantastic things about Britain is that we remember those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Sport Relief is one of the fantastic charities that help people in need and I know everybody in Chester will want to get behind them.

“Sport Relief is all about using sport to support vulnerable people in Chester, across the UK and around the world. The Parliamentary Pedal Challenge was great fun and I hope I can encourage others to get out there and fundraise.”

Kevin Cahill, chief executive of Comic Relief, added: “We hope the support that Stephen Mosley has given to Sport Relief will inspire their constituents to do their bit at the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games to help raise money and change lives on the doorstop in the UK and around the world.”

Sainsbury’s is a supporter of Sport Relief.

The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games take place from tomorrow (Friday) to Sunday, March 23, and the public can join in the fun by running, swimming or cycling their way to raising cash at more than 1,000 venues around the country.
