Sport Relief 2012

Part of BT's biggest year of sport

BT has been a key partner in each Sport Relief campaign. We not only help the telethons run like clockwork, enabling Sport Relief to take donations from the public, but we're the main sponsor of the BT Celebrity Challenges, which see well-known faces go the extra mile to help disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa.

This year, we've committed to raising £1 million for Sport Relief 2012, and we really want you to take part – read on to find out more.

Paris to London – or hell and back?

Sport relief – Bishop's week of hell

John Bishop attempted to go from Paris to London in the latest BT Sport Relief Challenge –
Bishop's Week of Hell.

The Liverpudlian comedian attempted to cycle, row and run all the way from Paris to London – in just five days!

John hopes to raise enough money to pay for a vaccine against five deadly diseases for 250,000 children in Africa, and also to help people living incredibly tough lives in the UK.

Sport relief – David Walliams
