Perseverance has paid off

I would like to thank once again everyone who supported me in my efforts to run my first half-marathon, the Great North Run 2016, in aid of the Alzheimer's Society.

As those who read my weekly column will know, I did not find the training journey easy and there were many occasions when I questioned why I was putting myself through it all.

However, I persevered and not only did I cross the finish line on the day, but I am delighted to report that, thanks to the kindness and generosity of all those who supported me, I raised a grand total of £918.

Thank you.
