Anti-poverty sports programme launched

A SPORTS programme to help young people living with poverty in Scotland and in other parts of the world has been launched.

Well-known cyclist Graeme Obree was among the guests as Sport Relief chief executive Kevin Cahill announced the £5 million Home and Away programme this week, half paid for by the fundraising body and half by the Scottish Government.

Half of the money will fund projects in Scotland and the other half will be spent on health and enterprise initiatives in countries such as Malawi in Africa.

More from the Press Association.
