Great North Run - Amy's story

We would like to say a massive well done and thank you to Amy who completed the Great North Run on behalf of Barnsley Samaritans.
 
Amy's story
 
After working hard over the past year to loose weight, almost 6 stone!!!, and get fit, I decided in a moment of madness to enter The Great North Run. The challenge was quite enormous and I doubted my fitness level right up to the start line. I had a great companion running with me, Karen Ibbotson, who literally got me to the end alive! Please help me in raising funds for Barnsley Samaritans. I have come to realise how important the work of The Samaritans is, the branch is run entirely by volunteers and has to raise £25000 a year to remain open and provide this vital service to anyone needing someone to talk to 24/7 and free to call on 116123. 
I am very proud to be an ambassador for this charity and if you would like to donate you can via my donation site at Mydonate
