Congratulations to our Great North Run Superstars!

This weekend saw the return of the world’s biggest half marathon as the Great North Run celebrated its 40th staging. Over 57,000 runners headed to Newcastle Upon Tyne to take part and raise money for charities across the country.
We were also represented at the race by our awesome TOFS runners.

Our huge thanks go out to Alice Hazlehurst, Chris Prickett, Gerald Hovenden, Lisa Honeyman, and Marc Charnley for running in support of TOFS.

Between them, they raised over an unbelievable £4,600!

What an amazing achievement!
