Great North Run

Samantha Nicholson is following in the footsteps of her brother Corey by doing the Great North Run to raise funds for Blind Life in Durham. This year’s run takes place on 10th September and we wish Samantha a successful run – her brother completed the run in 1 hour 45 minutes.

Both of them were inspired to run and raise money because of their great uncle Jack McGrath a Blind Life in Durham member. He was left blind as a result of an accident at work, however like his great niece and great nephew he is determined to stay active. Jack plays New Age Kurling regularly and loves participating in other activities like sailing – even going for a flying lesson on his 70th birthday.
