Seahouses RNLI Fundraising Treasurer competes in Great North Run
Seahouses RNLI Fundraising Treasurer Susan Calvert not only works hard as the Station Fundraising Treasurer, but also decided to raise some funds herself for the Seahouses RNLI station.
Susan went into training, jogging around Seahouses, occasionally supervised by her husband, Seahouses Crewman and Assistant Mechanic Neil Calvert, (from the comfort of his car of course!). After securing loads of sponsors, Susan went on to run in the BUPA Great North Run on 16 September, 2012, completing the course in a very respectable 2hr 19mins.
After collecting in all her sponsorship, her employers, Barclays Bank, matched the money she had raised, with a splendid £750 donation, bringing her total to a superb £1,580.

Leeane commented, 'What a fantastic effort, Susan has done really well and we are thrilled to receive her cheque. A big thank you to her and all her sponsors - well done indeed.'
