GNR Runner Profile - Meet Laura Mann

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.
