ASPIRE is raising money for Sport Relief, one of the world's biggest fundraising events.

On Friday 21st March students will work together to complete a mile-long, three-legged walk for charity.

We'll also be hosting a pie and puds bake-off and have given children the opportunity to vote for a bonus event (which includes shaving Mr Murphy's head!)

Pupils will also spend this week’s form time coming up with extra ways they can raise funds.

Last year ASPIRE raised nearly €2,000 for Comic Relief through a range of activities, including sponge the teacher, and this year we hope to smash our charity record.

All money raised will go towards projects that benefit the world's poorest communities.

The previous Sport Relief, which took place in 2012, raised an incredible £67.9 million.

Since the event, which takes place every two years, more than 6.4 million people around the world have benefitted.

The record-breaking figure has supported 280,000 people with quality education, bought more than 1.4 million vaccines for preventable diseases, and helped ensure at least 100,000 people have access to clean water.
