Batman, Spiderman, a Dalek and a horse were among those who completed a mile to raise money for charity.

Students and staff completed four laps of Hillingdon Athletics Stadium track as part of a number of sporting activities held by Uxbridge College to raise money for Comic Relief. Use of the Stadium was kindly provided by Fusion.

The other fundraising events included a number of competitions on site at College including volleyball, netball shots, tennis serve contest, penalty shoot out, three on three basketball, and six-a-side football. Individuals and teams paid a fee to enter each of the competitions and a total of £268.50 was raised.

Richard Goffe, Sports lecturer and coach, said: “We were very pleased with how many people got involved and with the money raised. Our sporting events for Red Nose Day are now an annual tradition at Uxbridge College which we hope to continue for many years to come.”

Prizes for the charity mile went to Elise Sikorski, Course Team Leader for Sport, for best fancy dress (dressed as a 70's pop star) and sports student Nathan Murphy (17), for fastest 400m (59.79 secs).

Comic relief raises money to help vulnerable and disadvantaged people across the UK and Africa.
