Sports Relief raises funds for the most vulnerable in the UK and abroad, and encourages people to get active to raise cash for good causes.

The aim of the event was to raise as much money as possible from the public by asking viewers to donate during the live broadcast on BBC.

Mark Nardin from D&G said: “Sport Relief is one of the best examples of a charity inspiring people to take action. We have worked with the organisation for a long time, which is really down to the enthusiasm and commitment our employees have shown for the initiative. I am hugely proud that they are so engaged and willing to give over their free time.”

In total, £38,195,278 was raised by Sports Relief on Friday night.
