Three friends preparing to take on a fundraising challenge are hoping to boost their efforts with a special event.
Danielle Robinson, Lynsey Cramman and Trudi McIntosh have begun training for this year’s Great North Run to help charities close to their hearts.
And to boost their fundraising, they have organised a special event at Backworth Hall featuring live music, games, raffles and more.
The event takes place on Saturday, July 19, with doors opening at 6pm with a real ale tasting before the main event begins at 7pm.
Danielle is raising money for the Children with Cancer charity after her four-year-old cousin died from a rare form of cancer 14 years ago, Lynsey is running on behalf of the Sara’s Hope Foundation and Trudi is running for the Far Place Animal Rescue Centre.
Danielle said: “This is the first time we’re doing the Great North Run.
“We’re all part of Monkey Runners in Whitley Bay and after starting last year we decided to go for this challenge.”
Tickets cost £15 per person while tables can be reserved.
