Congratulations to this year's runners!

We'd like to say a huge congratulations and thank you to the fantastic 500 runners who took part in the Great North Run. The team have raised an amazing £75,000! The team were spurred on by friends and family at cheering points to give them a boost. Those who came to the charity village afterwards were treated to a well deserved cup of tea, refreshments and a chance to celebrate.
