Today we had a very special visitor, Mark Allison, affectionately known in the media as Run, Geordie, Run, who is taking on the huge challenge of running around the world to raise money for charity (http://www.rungeordierun.com/).
Mark spoke to the children in assembly about what he is doing, why and how he is doing it. The children were also given the opportunity to ask him questions.
The worthwhile charities which he supports are
The Children’s Foundation (http://www.thechildrensfoundation.co.uk/)
The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation (http://sirbobbyrobsonfoundation.org.uk/)
On behalf of Usworth Colliery, we made a small donation to his fundraising. We’d like to thank Mark for coming into school today and being a true inspiration.
