With team captains Jennifer Saunders and Oti Mabuse both vying for goal-scoring glory, there’s everything to play for.

These famous faces are getting active for Sport Relief to raise money to help support vulnerable people here in the UK and abroad through projects such as Shooting Touch in Rwanda. They deliver netball health sessions that incorporate an employability module to drive gender equity, reduce stigmas, and increase employment. The project includes elements designed specifically for women, aimed at driving economic empowerment through employment and self-employment in their communities.
Through the amazing power of sport, we raise money to tackle some of the big issues across the UK and internationally. When you donate to Sport Relief, you’re supporting people who urgently need help, to set them on a path towards a better life.
