THE biggest running event in the North East calendar is almost here.
Hartlepool & District Hospice would love to hear from runners with a guaranteed place in the Bupa Great North Run on September 15 who are interested in supporting a local cause.
The Hospice offers specialist palliative care to hundreds of adults each year. It costs £2.34 million to provide the current range of services.
The Hospice receives 24 per cent NHS funding.
The outstanding amount of more than £1.7m must be raised through the local community and other fundraising initiatives.
Runners wanting to support the hospice should contact (01429) 855529 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
