Halifax’s paralympic champion Hannah Cockroft is among famous faces backing Sport Relief.

She is among stars urging people to sign up for one of the events taking place over the weekend of the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games on March 21 to 23.

Hannah said running events are being held all over the country which can be found at sportrelief.com

“Whether you want to race the stop watch with your friend dressed up as a chicken, it’s up to you,” she said.

“The best bit is the money you raise will go to some fantastic projects supporting vulnerable people around the UK and in the world’s poorest countries.”

The last Sport Relief in 2012 raised £1.2 million across Yorkshire.

On March 21 the BBC will broadcast an evening of Sport Relief TV which will include a special Only Fools and Horses sketch featuring David Beckham.
