I am running this years Great North Run (my first) to help raise money for Durham Wildlife Reserve.
Growing up in Yorkshire, I would be taken to nature reserves most weekends by my grandparents. I've always been bothered about our environment and I feel in the past few years we are finally coming to a point where we are realising about our planet and the damage we have caused. We are learning that we can't just dump plastics in the seas, tear down the natural habitats of animals and that we need to have a positive impact on the earth.
I'd love if you could spare anything at all to go to the Durham Wildlife Trust, an amazing charity covering from the Tees to the Tyne, managing 35 nature reserves and covering an area of almost 800 hectares.
