BA Flying Start Extra Mile events (incl. Concorde Club on March 25th enabled by BAAC)  

Are you ready to go the extra mile?

BA's Flying Start’s Sport Relief campaign is limbering up, ready to race off the starting blocks tomorrow (Thursday, 23 February).

The airline’s partnership with Comic Relief is looking for colleagues to help raise over £150,000. The money raised will be spent helping children living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world’s poorest countries.

Everyone at British Airways can get involved and join the fun. A number of celebrities, including Olympic sprinter Linford Christie and ex-England footballer Gary Lineker will be hosting events throughout the UK, giving you the chance to compete against them in their sports.

Wherever you work in the company, this is your chance to help make a difference to the people who really need it.
