British Embassy Belgrade joined Sport Relief Campaign to raise money which will help people who live in tough conditions.

The Sport Relief Mile Belgrade (#SportReliefBgd) event is jointly organised by the British Embassy in Belgrade, Serbian Paralympic Committee (POKS) and the Serbian Rugby League Federation.

Sport Relief Mile Belgrade is our attempt to join in a truly big national “Sport Relief” campaign, which brings thousands of communities, businesses, organisations, schools, sport teams and individuals across Britain together, to raise money which will help people who live in tough conditions. Last year our Embassies around the world helped to raise £15,000 for local charities by hosting Sport Relief Mile events.

We are organising the Belgrade event in support of a good cause in Serbia, and all the funds raised from this charity would go to Svratište, a shelter for children without home. The charity run will take place on Thursday, 20 March, from 12-14h, on “Donji grad Kalemegdan” next to “Kapija Karla VI” ( Carl VI gate), and will be followed by a touch rugby tournament.

Come and join us in this challenge!
