GNR Runner Profile - Meet Andy Hassall

Next month the 2022 Great North Run is taking place in Newcastle and four wonderful people have offered to take part to support us.


Martyn Wilson, Andy Hartley, Andy Hassall and Laura Mann will all be running for us on Sunday 11th September.


Over the next few days, we will be sharing all of our runner’s stories with you and letting you know how you can help them in their fundraising efforts.


Today’s runner is…Andy Hassall!



Andy is also a member of the Morson Projects team and will be joining his colleague Andy Hartley in Newcastle next month.


When our CEO Angela heard that we had two runners from Morson Projects she was so happy that she joined them for a photo, even though she doesn’t qualify for a running vest!


Angela said:

“We have four runners taking part in the 2022 Great North Run to support our organisation and are incredibly grateful to them all. When Andy and Andy told us they would like to run on our behalf we were delighted. Having Morson on board to boost our fundraising efforts and to highlight the contribution made by unpaid carers is fantastic. I would like to wish them the best of luck and hope they have a wonderful day. Myself and the rest of the staff team will be cheering for them on September 11th. Good luck guys!”

Andy took some time between poses to complete his runner profile for us.
