A Great North Success!

GNR Cheer pointLast year, 46 athletic Christian Aid runners took part in the Morrison’s Great North Run, covering 13.1 miles to raise money for us in our 70th anniversary year. Together they raised £26,278 (not including Gift Aid). This was a great achievement and over £14,000 more than we raised at the same event in 2014!

The runners began their day with pre-race hospitality at St Luke’s church, just by the start line, with access to proper toilets (as opposed to portaloos) - a real luxury!

As they made their journey to South Shields, they were cheered on by a fantastic team of Christian Aid volunteers, armed with mega-phones and jelly babies at various points along the route.

The sun was out and spirits were high. It made for a wonderful atmosphere and a great sense of achievement.

We would like to say a massive thank you to all of our amazing runners and to volunteers who helped out on the day. You made this fundraising event such a success.
