On Sunday 13th September, we cheered on over 300 Team St Oswald’s runners in the Morrison’s Great North Run 2015.
We were blessed with sunshine and the atmosphere at the tent was fantastic. We were supported by volunteers from Wyevale Garden Centre in Gosforth, Asda in Gosforth and Wansbeck Road, Sky contact centre in Newcastle and Newcastle City Learning, who ensured our runners received a hero’s welcome on arrival back to the charity village tent.
It was fantastic to hear the stories of our runners , many of whom were taking part in memory of a loved one, and be able to say thank you in person. We hope that the event will raise over £100,000 for the Hospice, allowing us to continue caring for local people with life limiting illnesses.
Thank you to all of the runners, and everyone who sponsored them, supported them and turned up to cheer them on. Your support means so much to us.
If you would like to be part of the 2016 St Oswald’s Great North Run team and run with us in our 30th anniversary year, we have guaranteed places now available!
