STAFF and students from Bodmin College will take part in the "Ultimate Warrior Challenge" competition on Friday to raise funds for Sport Relief 2014.

As one of the UK's biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives.

Since 2002 Sport Relief has raised more than £195 million, and the money raised is spent by Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives, both in the UK and across the world.

This Ultimate Warrior Challenge will see staff and students going head to head in four disciplines.

Among others the staff will be represented by former Republic of Ireland and Premier League footballer Chris Morris and former Welsh rugby union international Kevin Moseley.

The contest will take place in Bodmin College's sports hall, starting at 1pm with music, a sound system and rival supporters to boot, and Brett Elliott, principal at Bodmin College, said: "Everyone loves an excuse to have some fun and this way the whole college can get involved, even if it is at the expense of the boss in pain.

"The countdown has begun and the participants are already training hard as well as collecting sponsorship pledges to raise as much money as possible. All the money they raise for Sport Relief will help people living unimaginably tough lives."
