Run to give for those who gave at event

A Poppy Run – the only one in the North East and Scottish Borders – will take place in north Northumberland this weekend.

The event leaves Sandy’s House, in Milfield (NE71 6TJ) on Sunday at noon.

It is part of a national series taking place to raise funds and awareness for the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal 2014.

Tom Fairfax, chairman of the Crookham RBL, said: “The fun run is for everyone of all ages and abilities.

“You can run it. jog it or walk it. The important thing is to take part in this centenary of 1914.

“It is the only Poppy Run in the North East and Scottish Borders, in a beautiful part of north Northumberland.

“The Poppy Run is your opportunity to run to give for those who gave.”
