BLA runs for Sport Relief

 Denise Van Outen has gone from yummy mummy to star athlete to launch the first ever Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games.  Denise showed her strength in her swimming gear as it was revealed that for the first time ever the public can take part in three sporting challenges for Sport Relief - running, swimming and cycling - all over one epic weekend from 21st – 23rd March 2014.

The events will take place in over a thousand locations across the country including landmark events at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Those lucky enough to get a place will be one of the first to experience the Park in all its glory as it fully reopens next year, with events and entertainment taking place over the fun-filled weekend.

Anyone wanting to guarantee a space at the Park or other venues across the UK and make the most of half price entry* can enter at

Denise Van Outen said: "I love Sport Relief and even took part in a mile event when I was pregnant! This year I'm going to do something more challenging and swim 5km. My three year old, Betsy, has just started having swimming lessons so I thought it was time for mummy to learn properly too as I've never been very confident in the water, so the Sport Relief swim really will be a challenge for me."

As well as accessible events for everyone, the new Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games offer the public even sportier challenges than ever before. Whether people want to cycle 50 miles, swim 5km or run 6 miles, those looking for a challenge need to sign up early, start training and make every mile count by raising heaps of cash for some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and around the world.

But it’s not all about the tough stuff, there are plenty of options to join in the fun and games during the Sport Relief Weekend:

Walk, jog or run the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile, choosing from 1, 3 or 6 mile distances

Make a splash with the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Swimathon, and choose from a range of individual and team distances, including 1.5km, 2.5km and 5km or people can choose their own distance with SimplySwim

People can get on their bikes and take part in the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Cycle, taking place in Glasgow, Manchester and London’s Lee Valley VeloPark. Participants can cycle 25 miles, 50 miles or get the whole family involved in a 3 mile cycle

Money raised from Sport Relief will be spent helping some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and around the world.

Bringing the library to you: Warrington’s Home Library Service

If you cannot visit the library because of ill-health or a disability then you can ask to join our Home Library Service. It is available to any member of the communitywho has long or short term mobility issues and so can’t get out to visit the library on their own.


The library is free to join and you can borrow books in large print as well as ordinary print. We also have books on CD so you can listen while the story is read to you.


A volunteer chooses books to your taste and delivers them to you in your home. The volunteer also returns the books you have read to the library.

You and the volunteer agree together when they should go to the library for you.


Our volunteers are DBS (CRB) checked and many of them have been volunteering with us for many years. They are always happy to stay for a while and have a chat when they bring your books.


If you are interested in receiving this free service or volunteering for it, then please ring Julie King on 01925 443528 or email:
