It’s just seven days to go until my second Great North Run.
With 56,000 entrants, it’s now the largest mass-participation event in the UK as well as the world’s largest half marathon.
Fundraising for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution is a really important part of the event for me (see my last post for some reasons why).
After raising £1652 for the RNLI on last year’s run, this year I hope to raise over £2000 for my local crew at Tynemouth Lifeboat Station — a busy station protecting the North Sea coast.
To reach that target I could really do with your help. As well as supporting me through my JustGiving page, I’ve also created a new way to donate…
For every print purchased from my Sea Collection, £25 will be donated to the Tynemouth Lifeboat Station (£25 will pay for a week’s training for a lifeboat crew member).
So, not only will you have acquired a beautiful signed and numbered print but you will also be helping to save lives at sea.
This is a permanent feature of the Sea Collection, not just limited to my Great North Run fundraising efforts.
