Sport Relief with West Ham United

West Ham United are backing Sport Relief 2008 and asking fans to sign up for the London Mile this Sunday.

Anyone taking part can choose to do one, three or six miles - and supporters are being urged by organisers to wear their Hammers home or away shirts with pride when taking part. Sport Relief harnesses the power and passion of sport to change lives for the better. By getting active and raising cash everyone can feel good and do good too because all the money raised is spent by Comic Relief to help needy people at home in the UK and across the world's poorest countries.

That's not all. West Ham United fan Ben Shephard, the GMTV presenter, is going head to head with singer, and Tottenham Hotspur supporter, Lemar for Celebrity Boxing on Friday. Ben, 32, is being guided by Ricky Hatton on his intensive training programme, with the 29-year-old Lemar getting backing from Amir Khan. Ben said: "When it comes down to it, Lemar might be taller than me, he might have a longer reach than me, but that just means he's got further to fall!"
