We were delighted to have three competitors running in the 2019 Great North Run.  Becky raised £55 (£66.25 with gift aid) and £926.20 (£1,152.75 including gift aid) was jointly raised by Paul and Kirsty.
We would also like to give a special mention to our youngest fundraising member Riley, who took part in the Junior Great North Run raising a fabulous £235 (£275 including gift aid).  Riley (pictured) was inspired to raise money for our charity as his younger cousin Sadie (also pictured) is a member of the Tim Lamb Centre.  We were pleased when both Riley and Sadie visited the Tim Lamb Centre last week, to present us with the £30 cash sponsorship he had raised, in addition to £205 online.
In total our Great North runners raised £1216.20 (that’s over £5400 with Gift Aid), from these sponsorship events.  We are very grateful for the efforts of all four participants and would also like to thank all the supporters for their generosity.
The money raised from the Great North Run and Junior Great North Run is going to be put towards our garden improvement plan.  We are currently in discussions with a local company who are helping us identify the most appropriate equipment and we look forward to bringing you an update in the near future.
