Activities coordinator Jen Clay and administrator Gwen Cruickshank will accompany Muriel on a mile-long route around the village of Bidford, where they are hoping for plenty of support on the day. Gwen said: “Muriel is a very active resident and has enjoyed walking throughout her life. When we talk about the Sport Relief Mile she says she’s really looking forward to taking part.

“None of us have ever done it before so it will be a first for us all. We’re currently trying to find out if Muriel will be the oldest fundraiser taking part in the event – she’s bound to be one of the oldest at least.

“We haven’t set a fundraising target but are just hoping to collect as much as possible for this very worthy cause,” she added.

The trio will set off from the home, in Waterloo Road, to complete their mile on Tuesday.
