A team of 50 HospiceCare North Northumberland supporters are participating in today’s Great North Run, in what is the largest contingent to tackle the half-marathon for the charity.

Emma Arthur, fund-raiser at HospiceCare, said: “We are delighted to have our highest number of runners competing this year in aid of HospiceCare and so far have raised a fantastic £8,678.

“We wish our runners a fantastic time at this amazing race.”
