Thomas Clarkson Academy PE teacher Amy Anderson will be pulling on her trainers for the Great North Run this Sunday.

Miss Anderson will be joining her brother Craig to run the half marathon event in memory of her Nanna who died last year. The pair are raising funds for the Alzheimer’s Society.

Miss Anderson said: “My Nanna passed away on the day of the Great North Run last year, my brother and I decided to run it this year in her memory.

“In preparation I have run the Grand East Anglia Run in King’s Lynn and in July I did a 10km run around the Olympic Park in London.

“I am hoping to finish in around two and a half hours, but the main thing is to finish rather than the time.”
