Ian Rush appeared at the Sportsdirect.com store in Speke Park yesterday to conduct an in-store signing for fans that lent their support to Sport Relief 2012 by purchasing an official T-shirt.
This year’s official Sport Relief T-shirt is available exclusively via Sportsdirect.com in store and online and Rush is the latest in a long line of famous faces to lend their support to the campaign
Rush said: “Sport Relief weekend is right around the corner, so if you haven’t already been to Sportsdirect.com and picked up your official Sport Relief T-shirt then make sure you do. Buying a T-shirt and getting it signed is a simple thing to do, and the money raised will help people living unimaginably tough lives, both on our doorstep in the UK and across the world’s poorest countries, plus . I love mine, and want to see as many Liverpool and Wales fans in theirs as possible this week!”
This year’s Sport Relief T-shirt is available exclusively via Sportsdirect.com in store and online, and retails for £8 for an adult T-shirt and £6 for the junior, with at least £4 of the adult and at least £2 of the junior then going straight to Sport Relief.
The £4 donated from the adult T-shirt could pay for 10 children in Uganda to be tested for malaria so they can get a quick diagnosis and receive the life-saving treatment they desperately need, while £2 from the junior T-shirt could enable a young person living in a disadvantaged UK community to play football in a safe, nurturing environment after school, helping them to escape local gang violence.
As one of the UK’s biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. All the money raised by the public helps people living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world’s poorest countries.
The Sport Relief Weekend is happening from Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th March, but t-shirts are on sale now, and for the first time the 100% fair trade cotton T-shirts can be personalised.
People looking to go the extra mile in their T-shirt can also support Sport Relief by signing up for their nearest Sport Relief Mile by going to www.sportrelief.com
