SOME were wearing fancy dress, others just their training gear, but all of those who took part in the Sewerby Hall and Gardens Sport Relief Mile were raising money for a good cause.

Despite the cliff-top fog and chilly temperatures, well over a hundred people turned up to compete in the charity fun-run, which was staggered in three lengths; one mile, three miles and six miles.

Myles Bacon, events manager Sewerby Hall and Gardens, said the event was a “great success”.

“We were very busy; with the Sport Relief Mile, the Wedding Fayre, and the opening of the new children’s play area meant for a really busy day. It was a great success.

“Everyone enjoyed the day and we had lots of people coming down for the run.

“It is nice to have something like this on at the Hall, it brings the community together and that is something we always try and achieve.”

As well as the Sport Relief mile, the Hall and Gardens also played host to a Spring Wedding Fayre, and also officially opened a new children’s play area, ready in time for the Hall’s grand official re-opening for the season this weekend.
