Geordies striker runs for Geordie Charity

Geordies sharpshooter Gareth raises cash for Bobby Robson Foundation

We brought you news last month of the ever-growing link between our Geordies, Hanwell Town of the Pitching In Isthmian South Central Division, and those other Geordies, Newcastle United. Town striker Gareth Chendlik is the latest to embrace that relationship, with the announcement he's taking on a 10K run to raise funds for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation.

Gareth explains:

'I'm running and fundraising for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation to help to find more effective ways to detect and treat cancer.

They fund projects directly benefiting cancer patients from across NE England and Cumbria, including the clinical trials of new drugs at the Sir Bobby Robson Cancer Trials Research Centre, while contributing significantly to national and international research into the disease.'

You don't have to be a Geordie to contribute, Gareth will even take money from Mackems- and you can donate by heading here.
