£17,000 landmark passed

In all of the excitement of last Sunday's Great North Run, I almost forgot to mention that George Caulkin's fundraising efforts pushed the charity total over the £17,000 barrier!

George's £1,000 now puts the total amount raised for St Benedict's Hospice and The Children's Foundation up to (drum roll please) an amazing £17,638.

Once the sponsor money from the other members of Team Run Geordie Run is collected then the total amount raised should just about sneak over £18,000.

Helping to continually move the total on nicely, of course, are the sale of Run Geordie Run t-shirts. Hardly a day goes buy that I get sent a photo of someone wearing one or news of one spotted out running reaches me. There are only 40 or so left. So if you're thinking about buying one then I'd move fast.

Run Geordie Run t-shirts are screen printed both front and back for durability and thanks to nufc.com for paying for the latest batch (Peter McCowie paid for previous batches) the full £10 goes to charity. Run Geordie Run t-shirts can be ordered here.
