  Sport Relief for EastEnders
Updated 08 June 2004, 17.07
Spencer, aka Chris, chats about the life at the Old Vic  with some real life East-Enders
Just weeks away from Sport Relief 2004, Newsround took a trip to the East End of London to be bowled over by a Sport Relief cricket project.

Newsround's Adam Fleming was knocked for six when he ran into one of his favourite EastEnders stars in the East End for real!

Kids with learning difficulties come along to the Sport Relief cricket scheme in London for fun and friendship. It helps them make new friends and improves their sporting abilities.

This helps boost their confidence and gives them the chance to have a bit of fun and exercise.

Every now and again celebrities involved with Sport Relief pop up at various projects to see how things are going.

Chris Parker, who plays Spencer Moon in EastEnders, spent the day catching up with the kids in the London project.

Chris told Adam he really valued being able to go along to see how the cricket helped the kids.

He said: "I've heard a lot about Sport Relief but I'd never visited one of their projects - it's just nice to get first-hand experience of what it's all about."

'He's quite good!'

The kids loved chatting to him and quizzed him about the rest of the cast and storylines.

Chris knew what he was there 'four' and wasn't afraid to get stuck in with the cricketing action!

Michael is one of the kids who plays cricket at the project. He reckons Chris's visit was great.

He told Newsround: "I'd like to have him in school, to be a teacher - I like it when he's batting - he's quite good!"

Rachel Stevens sings the official Sport Relief song and everyone and anyone can join in a special fun event to 'go the extra mile' on 10 July.

The site tells you all about how you can help kids here and abroad and have fun and get fit while doing it!
