An amazing achievement Maureen.  I know you have completed the Great North Run before but this year has been much more challenging with the lockdown and all that has gone with it.  Well done you for being so resilient and focused in spite of it all and in doing so, raising funds for Just ‘B’/Saint Michael’s. Thank you.
