Chloe goes the extra mile for Sport Relief

Your Game matches community groups working with 16-25 year-olds to funding, training and employment opportunities. It does this through community festivals and year round support.

The 118 Girls made an appearance

It's not very often that you see Katie Price, the 118 Girls and Shirley and Heather from Eastenders running around the Wirral but that's exactly what happened at Chloe Tolman's fancy dress sponsored mile for Sport Relief.

Over 30 people took part, including many of the young people Chloe coaches at Wirral Positive Futures, "I'm made up by the turn out and the fact that all the kids came in fancy dress. It's been a great day and we've all had fun but raised money for a good cause too."

12 year-old Jack Cook came in first with 11 year-old Karl Barker a close second. Jack said, "I wanted to get involved in Sport Relief and found the mile quite easy." Karl Barker continued, "My football game was cancelled so I decided to do this instead, Chloe coaches me at football and I've had a good day."

12 year-old Lewis Daley went above and beyond the call of duty, running in heels dressed as Shirley from EastEnders, "I borrowed my Auntie's clothes and my Mum did my make up but I found it difficult running in heels though!"

Wirral Positive Futures Programme Mentor Colin Hunt nominated Chloe to become an All Star, "Chloe started with us initially as a volunteer over two years ago and is now working as a paid coach. We run loads of different sessions to tackle anti-social behaviour in the area, including football and Thai boxing. We're constantly looking for funding so we can continue and extend our work."

The event raised a grand total of £280 for Sport Relief.
