AN Alnwick dentist is getting ready to take part in the Great North Run to raise money for his son’s school.

Scott Williamson, 48, who works at the Market Street Dental practice, has run the famous half-marathon before but not for over a decade.

And this time he is raising money for Tweedmouth’s Grove Special School’s holiday fund.

The fund goes to provide trips for all of the pupils at the school, and last year Scott’s 11-year-old son Adam was one of the group that went on a five-day trip to Centre Parcs in Cumbria.

The Great North Run, between Newcastle and South Shields, takes place on Sunday, September 18, this year.

If anyone wants to sponsor Scott, contact the Market Street Dental Practice in Alnwick on 01665 602178.
