Fund-raising fun runners

A RECRUITMENT drive has been launched by Age UK Northumberland to enlist fund-raising fun runners.

The charity is appealing for people with places in the Great North Run next week to consider raising sponsorship for their efforts to help fund its services to vulnerable people across the county.

The group provides home care, day care, a friendship line, dementia care, information, advice and advocacy support, as well as services for people in isolated locations.

Any run participants wishing to support Age UK Northumberland should contact Fundraising Manager Catrina Flynn on 01670 784841 or email
