Sport Relief 2014 takes place this weekend, and, as ever, the Harrogate district is expected to do its bit and raise thousands to help those in need at home and abroad.

People across North Yorkshire always put in a huge amount of effort to support events such as this, and we expect this year to be no different.

Readers of the Harrogate Advertiser, Knaresborough Post, Nidderdale Herald, Ripon Gazette and Wetherby News are urged get involved with our widespread coverage by sharing their fundraising pictures and video.

We will update our websites and include pictures across our titles where possible.

There is so much going on across the Harrogate district.

As one example, BBC Look North (Yorkshire) presenters Harry Gration and Amy Garcia rode through the town this week as part of their Tour de Yorkshire challenge.

The pair arrived on a tandem bicycle before setting off again on their 241mile ride, retracing the July route of the Tour de France.

And it couldn’t be easier for schools, businesses and families across Harrogate, Knaresborough, Nidderdale, Ripon, and Wetherby to share their efforts too.

Planned events

l Harrogate Town AFC will host a Question of Sport event, presented by Sainsbury’s, Stray FM and MKS EVents and PR. Stars from the world of football including Gareth Southgate, Danny Mills and Colin Cooper will participate.

There will be a charity auction and disco at the event, being held at the CNG Stadium on Sunday, March 23 from 7.30pm.

lHarrogate College students are cycling 390km in a Tour de France-themed challenge.
