Thanks (Part 2)

It's time to continue the series of "Thank yous" to another member of the extended Run Geordie Run team. I now turn my attention to a guy who has given up a lot of spare time for the cause; artist and designer, Brian Wells.

Brian was responsible for creating the Run Geordie Run logo. He actually produced a selection of 5 different logos and the current one was chosen after a lot of deliberation. Brian's work didn't stop there either. Soon after the logo choice was finalised he designed the Run Geordie Run t-shirts. The t-shirts have so far yielded over £1,300 for the 2 charities and will continue to bring in funds over the next few years (more on that in a subsequent blog post).

More recently, Brian produced the artwork for the Run Geordie Run CD front cover and also polished up the concept artwork for the CD body produced by Simon Kelly (more on Simon in a subsequent blog post). In the first few weeks, the CDs have so far yielded over £150 for the 2 charities. Just like the t-shirts I'll be selling these over the next few years. And of course, they are available as a download from and they will soon be available on iTunes.

So, I'm sure you'll agree, that Brian's contribution has been a valuable one and the time and effort that he has put in will continue to help raise funds for St Benedict's Hospice and The Children's Foundation over the next few years. Thanks Brian.
