A SPORTY team will hop to it and raise money to support some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and around the world.

Members of Malvern's Zig Zag Coaching have decided to complete the Sport Relief Mile on their chosen mode of transport - space hoppers - on Tuesday, March 18 at 7.30pm.

They will set off from Sport Dyson Perrins at Dyson Perrins CE Academy, Yates Hay Road, and bounce their way to the Langland Stadium home of Malvern Town Football Club in Langland Avenue.

Supporters are being encouraged to cheer the team across the line and then join them at the football club's quiz from 8.30pm, with entry at £1 per player.

Sport Relief comes around every two years and the British public are encouraged to get active, have fun and raise cash to help people living incredibly tough lives both in the UK and around the world.

The coaching team's challenge is quite a departure from the usual sporting efforts which see people encouraged to walk, run, swim or cycle for charity.
