A Great Local - I have always been a great supporter and like to help local charities as much as possible
I’m thrilled to have the chance to run the Great North Run in its 40th year and my 50th year. I will be turning fifty August 2020 and I’m celebrating this milestone by running a half-marathon – it’s time to see what the old girl’s got left in her!
Teamwork Trust is a local charity that supports the needs of many adults ensuring that everyone has the same chances, choices and opportunities as well as embracing and celebrating all of their individual needs !Teamwork offers a friendly, supportive environment where individuals can make new friends, access education, an opportunity to gain employability skills, whilst regaining self-esteem and confidence.
I wanted to raise money for a local charity in particular to support my home town Corby. I wanted to find a charity who supported people with mental health issues (for personal reasons) or people with disabilities in particular. Someone close to me recommended Teamwork Trust because of the excellent mental health support Teamwork provided to this person. I was then thrilled to find out that Teamwork also help people with other disabilities so I felt I found my perfect charity to support.
