Pupils jump to it in their onesies and raise funds for Sport Relief

It's all onesies, twosies and threesies at an east Belfast primary school as it counts down to this year's Sport Relief.

One of the top fundraising schools for Sport Relief in 2012, Greenwood Primary raised nearly £6,000 from fun physical and sporting activities.

This year the pupils and staff will be joining in the Sainsbury's Sport Relief mile walk around the school in the week leading up to Sport Relief day on Sunday, March 23.

Teacher Claire Ashe said: "We are hoping to make up the Sport Relief mile by walking in our onesies, waddling in their wellies, wheeling around on scooters and walking backwards wearing something wacky."

Sport Relief organisers are challenging schools and nurseries throughout Northern Ireland to raise more than the £35,000 from the last Sport Relief effort.

The Belfast Telegraph has teamed up with Sport Relief to encourage applications to the Sport Relief Community Cash fund, delivered through the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland.

The fund has £50,000 to award grants of £500-£1,000 to small community organisations which have helped touch people's lives.

Teachers can get started by signing up for a free school fundraising resource pack.

It can be ordered online by visiting sportrelief.com/schoolsstuff.
