Coach to run for charity

A MORPETH woman will swap the poolside for the roads next month to raise money for a good cause.

Jenny Glossop is taking part in the Bupa Great North Run on Sunday, September 15, for Get Kids Going – a charity which supports disabled children and young people by providing them with bespoke wheelchairs and sports grants so they can play and participate in sport at all levels.

The Morpeth Swimming Club head coach said: “I really wanted to run to help disabled children and young people to get the equipment they need to play sport.”
