HUNDREDS of sports-mad children took part in events for Sports Relief across Halesowen and Sandwell.
Pupils at Leasowes High School donned fancy dress and took part in a sponsored 24 hour bounce on trampolines to raise cash for the national event.
The school was even featured on the BBC's coverage of Sports Relief, which raised over £50 million for good causes.
They were given a helping hand by Halesowen trampolining club Air Dynamix whose members bounced through the night with the pupils.
Halesowen Primary School also got in on the act by holding a one mile run to raise money with all the children dressing up as their favourite sports star.
As well as the children, parents and staff got involved in the fundraising throughout Friday which also included a dance-a-thon.
Deputy headteacher Steve Payne said: "It was great fun and it was the first time we had taken part in Sport Relief."
In Sandwell children and adults headed to Sandwell Valley Park to take part in a giant one mile run charity.
