Working for Children North East I get to see the amazing work the team does every day to help children, young people and families in need of help. So I am going to RUN and raise some much needed cash for the charity!
I have spent most of my career working with disadvantaged youths (want for a better term). They often feel like society has given up on them. There's support out there for them and their families but it's spread very thin. It was always very frustrating seeing the need for more help but eventually hitting stumbling blocks and dead ends. However small my contribution is, I will be proud to know that i have done something to help.
I'm Penny and I'm 4 years old. I love running and having fun and so I am taking part in the Mini Great North Run to raise money to support Children North East.
