PEOPLE from both ends of the age spectrum played their part in raising much-needed cash for Sport Relief.

The charity event has raised over £50million nationally for causes at home and abroad, and the city played its part in getting to record total.

Just Learning Limited/Little Acorns nursery in Allesley Green raised cash through a sponsored penalty shootout with youngsters going one-on-one against Coventry Blaze's mascot Scorch.

At Lammas House Care Home, staff and residents wore red and went on a sponsored walk raising nearly £50.

Resident John Sheldon, who is 96-years-old, said: "There was really good weather, we had nice company, good food and lots of joy and laughter."
