An advice project run by North Tyneside Disability Forums has been given a £300-plus boost.
The project, based at the Shiremoor Centre, in Earsdon Road, was given the money by well-wisher Brian Springthorpe, pictured with forum members.
Brian raised the cash by taking part in this year’s Great North Run from Newcastle to South Shields.
The project offers information on disability issues and provide support intended to encourage physical, emotional and financial wellbeing.
Lead community development worker Liz Turnbull said: “Every penny really does make a difference.
“Sadly, funding runs out in May 2016 for this much-needed lifeline.
“If you can help in any way, do not hesitate to contact us on 0191 200 8570 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org”
