Run Geordie Run on the high street

Some have hailed it "the best record shop in the world". It has seen the likes of Sting and Paul Weller through it's doors. It has won awards from respectable sources in the industry such as NME. 

It gives me great pleasure and pride to announce that, Steel Wheels in Newcastle now stocks the famous Run Geordie Run charity t-shirts (pictured in the shop window). Yes ladies and gentlemen, they are available on the high street!

Steel Wheels is located on St Mary's Place, right opposite the Civic Centre and halfway between Luckies Bar and Haymarket Metro station.

I always find it very difficult to get my head around just how much stock they have. So if you're after something rare or even mainstream I'd be very surprised if they didn't have it in stock. They even stock memorabilia and autographs from the likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Who and Take That.

Anyway, I would highly recommend checking out the shop for yourself. If you can't get into Newcastle then the Steel Wheels website is here.

In the meantime, I'd like to give a big thank you to Rob at Steel Wheels for stocking the Run Geordie Run t-shirts and passing on 100% of all sales to St Benedict's Hospice (Charity No 1019410) and The Children's Foundation (Charity No. 1000013). That deserves a huge round of applause!

Oh please don't forget that for every Run Geordie Run t-shirt sold in August, Digital Spark Ltd will donate a further £5 to the 2 charities. So your £10 plus a further £5 making £15 goes to charity. All £15 of it, by the way! Nobody but the 2 charities makes any money from these t-shirts. I've said it many times - "That is exactly how we like to do our fundraising at Run Geordie Run".

This has only been made possible by the fact that Custom Planet produce the t-shirts at cost and my friends at paid for those production costs.

Run Geordie Run t-shirts can be ordered on-line here.
