The money raised will help disadvantaged people living incredibly tough lives across the UK and the world’s poorest communities.
Cabinet member for community and environment, Councillor Robert Boswell, said: “We are delighted with the total amount of money raised this year.
“It’s brilliant to have been part of such a successful Sport Relief year and know that we are helping make difference to people’s lives.
Jess Kirke, Events Manager at Comic Relief, said: “We want to say a huge thank you to all of our local mile organisers.
“They work tirelessly to organise successful events up and down the country and we are truly grateful for all their efforts and hard work – Sport Relief wouldn’t be the event it is without them.”
