Charity fund almost at £8000!!!

Run Geordie Run t-shirt orders have flooded in today thanks to a brilliant  bit of publicity on As a result, the charity fund now stands just short of the next major milestone of £8,000. Tremendous!

I can't wait to see the lady's face in the Post Office when she sees me with all of the t-shirt parcels next week!

The Journal newspaper will be reporting that  the Newcastle United first team squad will be warming up in Run Geordie Run t-shirts prior to the Blackpool match tomorrow. Watch this space for further coverage on that tomorrow night.

Run Geordie Run t-shirts as pictured here with Sky Sports's Jeff Stelling are available for £10 each with the FULL £10 going to St Benedict's Hospice (Charity No. 1019410) and The Children's Foundation (Charity No. 1000013). Payment is made via meaning that the money goes straight to the charities. Postage to anywhere in the world is free. Although, I've noticed some overseas folk paying a bit extra to the charities to make up for the fact that I pay for the postage. That's entirely optional though.

Thanks once again to all of those very generous people who have bought a t-shirt. If you get the chance, I'd love to publish your photos on this site of you wearing them. Photos can be sent to
