Whereeeeerrrreeereee has the t-shirt been this week (Part 6)?

Seeing Newcastle United perform their warm up prior to today's match against Blackpool was a very proud moment indeed and will hopefully do wonders for Run Geordie Run, St Benedict's Hospice and The Children's Foundation. It was also really really brilliant to watch the team get another 3 crucial title chasing points.

The proudest part of the day for me, however, was when I received a picture of 6 year old Haydn Weymes with a Run Geordie Run T-shirt, from his Mum Alyson. Today was Haydn's first ever Newcastle match! Oh and what a first match to attend with Newcastle running out 4 - 1 victors over Blackpool.

Haydn has a rare chromosome disorder that has left him severely disabled but thankfully he has a very loving family around him. And it is to the Weymes family that I say a huge thank you for taking the time to take this picture. It really made my day and I think will touch the hearts of the hundreds of readers of this website.
