Amble RNLI is calling all keen runners to sign up for this year’s Great North Run to help raise funds for their Shannon lifeboat appeal.
The charity has spaces available for those who would like to take part in ththe world’s largest half-marathon, which takes place on Sunday, September 13, this year.
Registration is £40 and the RNLI is asking people to pledge to raise a minimum of £300. Entrants should state within their online application that they want to raise money for the Amble appeal, which is this year’s Jam Jar Army beneficiary.
Paul Nisbet, whose brother Christopher is one of the volunteer crew at Amble, took part in the run last year and raised £350 for the Shannon appeal.
“The efforts of the brave volunteer crew and their families who devote their time and resources to the charity were enough of an incentive to run for the RNLI,” he said.
