Story

Ok, so if you remember the middle of last year there was an urgent appeal to save the centre from closure . The amount of support was unbelievable and thankfully the centre is now safe , with a new group of trustees ( myself included) who are working together to make sure the building has a strong future .
So, why do we need to raise more funds ? We need the centre to be a vibrant and well used facility ,so updating inside and outside is a top priority .
The roof, windows ,doors,paint,floors all need work and the list could go on and on.....
My target figure would replace the windows,making them safe ,watertight and best of all the centre’s users would be able to see the amazing view .
So, as I'm asking for your cash I assume you need something in return and this is where I come in. Last year I started running and I like a challenge , so have run every day since 1st Oct 2017, then I signed up for a 1000mile challenge for the year. This is going ok but I need a little motivation to stay on track and to do that I signed up for a couple of races including the Great North Run. The last time I ran the Great North Run was 31 years ago ...I don't know if I can do it ,but I'm willing to try , so if you can sponsor me I would be grateful ,motivated and amazed and it would give me another reason to run. I believe with support this village is capable of anything and I hope that rubs off on me 😊 Every mile towards 1000 miles has been ran in hail, gales and snow with the odd bit of sunshine so please donate , and give me a shout /wave /beep if I run past .
thank you
