WorkerBee supports Great North Run Team for 2024

We were delighted to see Andrea from WorkerBee when she popped in last week. Andrea has kindly agreed to sponsor our running vests for all of our Great North Runners this year, allowing us to raise more funds on the day.

Andrea, owner of WorkerBee said

I couldn’t fathom the emotional turmoil parents must endure when their child is critically ill, and they’re torn between staying by their side and fulfilling their financial obligations. When I learned about the incredible support provided by the Charlie and Carter Foundation to these families, I knew I had to contribute. After reaching out to Laura to offer my assistance, we explored various avenues, including participating in the Great North Run. I started running in honour of my dad. While my days of running the Great North Run may be behind me, the vest sponsor is the perfect fit and allows me to remain connected to the GNR and supporting this cause in my own small way

Sarah Cookson MBE said

We would like to extend our heartfelt thank you to Andrea, her kindness and support means a great deal to us, relieving us of this cost will allow us to deliver all of the funds raised from this event to our inspirational families! #forevergrateful

The Great North Run is one of the highlights in the Charlie and Carter Foundations Event Calendar and with over 60 runners due to take part over the weekend this year is set to be the best one yet. This year we will be treating our Great North Runners to leg massages in our shop after the run, so runners come down to 18 Denmark Centre, meet friends and family and have a very well-deserved massage from Sandra at Essential Thyme.

We haven’t forgotten about our Juniors and Minis; the team will be cheering them on at the Quayside with goody bags for our little super-heroes!

Thank you to WorkerBee and all of our amazing runners! Go Team CCF!

We do still have limited places available for Mini Great North Runners, if you would like to get involved click here
