A close shave: Sport Relief

Long Road Sport staff and students gave Sport Relief their all – or at the very least their hair – for this year’s fund-raiser. The men’s staff football team was detemined to overcome the shame of their ignominious defeat two years ago and and fielded one of their strongest sides ever (see photo). Their opponents, the girls’ football team, did everything they could but this wasn’t their day – they lost 0 – 3.

To make up for it, the girls had a chance to see male staff – and one of our students – shorn of their locks.

For the less sporty, there was a karaoke session in the Internet Cafe organised by the Student Community Committee, while Student Supervisors Fiona Longwill and Dawn Masters went round with a collection bucket.
