The cancellation of the Great North Run means that Marie Curie will lose over £100,000 of vital funds to support its Hospice in Newcastle. Every year hundreds of people take part in the world’s largest half marathon to help the charity provide care and support to people living in our region.
The team at Bradley Hall Chartered Surveyors and Estate Agents is supporting the charity by taking part in the charity’s ‘Be A Local Hero’ initiative, including participating in Great North Run Reimagined and its other ‘1.3 Challenges’.
Volunteers from Bradley Hall will take part in the virtual half marathon, while others have formed a relay team or will cycle 13 miles in order to raise awareness and vital funds for the charity.
Neil Hart, Group Managing Director said: “We are very proud to be continuing our support of the Marie Curie Hospice, Newcastle, an outstanding organisation which provides much needed care for those who need it most.
“Many charitable organisations are struggling due to the impact of Covid-19, so we need to do all we can to keep raising awareness and funds for these important services which support our communities.
“Newcastle’s Marie Curie Hospice is an incredibly important organisation which provides quality support to people who have a terminal illness. The services which Marie Curie offer are not readily available everywhere and rely on the public’s generosity, which is why it is crucial that businesses and communities in the region support this charity.”
