Daisy UK and Sports Relief

Daisy Inclusive UK is lucky to be one of the charities being supported by 2012's Sports Relief. Sports Relief aims to get people active, raise money, and improve lives by providing funding to schemes across the country. As Part of Sports Relief's events, Daisy UK has been shown in a variety of BBC television shows throughout March. Hopefully these tv appearences and radio interviews will give you all a better idea of the work Daisy UK does and how it is supported by the sports relief funding.

On Friday the 9th of March Daisy UK was visited by a crew from the BBC television show "The One Show". Carrie Grant and her team came to talk to Daisy about the work we do. The footage was shown on the Friday 16th March and includes interviews with Dave and a number of the young people we work with.

From 16th to 25th March, 1,000 One Show viewers ran a mammoth 1,000-mile, ten-day relay through cities across Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England. Starting on the Isle of Mull, the brave runners ran night and day to finish triumphantly on The Mall in London. On the 21st of March our very own Dave Kelly joined the relay and ran a 1 mile section starting near Leeds. Before his run he was lucky enough to be interviewed live on the one show.

Tom is one of the young people who Daisy UK has worked with. Tom lost 70% of his vision at the age of 10. Now 3 years later he talks in an interview about how Daisy UK has helped him. The full interview can be found here.

In December we were visited by CBBC's Sam and Mark. They were here to record a piece for the CBBC Sports Relief Glee Club. They stayed for a full day of Wheelchair football, inclusive cricket, and a number of other inclusive sports. They also spent the time talking to a number of disabled young people about how Daisy UK had helped them to improve their lives. The video was shown on the Friday the 23rd of March Sport Relief Glee Club final.

Another programme that covered Daisy UK during sports relief was North West tonight. A camera crew crew came to record some of the young people we work with and interview them about some of their experiences and discuss how Daisy has helped them. They also spoke to Dave Kelly, our managing director, about what made him start Daisy UK.

On the 20th of March 2012, Dave Kelly was invited to visit the Sean Styles show on BBC Radio Merseyside. Dave had a great time there and had a chance to talk about Daisy UK and sports relief.
