Southport quintet conquer Simplyhealth Great North Run for local charity

TEAM of 5 local runners take on UK's largest ½ Marathon for Southport respite centre. 5 brave locals conquered the Simplyhealth Great North Run on Sunday, 10 September for local disabled people's charity Revitalise, which runs the Sandpipers Respite Holiday Centre in Southport. 4 of the 5 runners actually work at the Centre.

The 4 successful runners who work at Sandpipers were Dave Chroston, Deputy Manager, Nafisa Mohammed and Manmeet Punny, both Healthcare Assistants, and Duty Manager Rachel Yule. Rachel was joined by her father Vernon Yule for the race, completing the 'Famous 5.'

Commenting on the team's challenge, Dave Chroston said:- "Disabled people and carers from across the region and beyond depend on Revitalise and Sandpipers for the lifeline of respite, so there was no way we weren't going to complete this challenge. Before the race we said we were going to run, walk or crawl the Great North Run to raise money for Revitalise. Well, none of us had to crawl!"

Revitalise Sandpipers provides much needed respite holidays, combining 24 hour nurse led care with a real holiday experience, for disabled people and carers from the North West region and beyond. It is 1 of 3 UK centres run by the charity.  The Simplyhealth Great North Run on Tyneside is the UK's largest ½ Marathon. This year over 43,000 runners took on the famous 13.1 mile course. People can still donate to Revitalise via the 5's Just Giving Page.
