Front Cover!

Couldn’t believe my eyes went I saw this on our doorstep mat this afternoon! Utterly amazing and I’m so grateful to the Durham Advertiser for featuring my story on the cover.


I’m due to run my last day tomorrow so I hope this article manages to push my fundraising total over the £700 mark. It would be fantastic if it did anyway. I’m well chuffed with my total though and I’ve already smashed my target so I’m happy.


I’ve just received a tweet from an old college buddy of mine called Gareth. It said “Inspired by the fantastic fundraising efforts of Father Fitness and Paul Stainthorpe, I’ve done my 2nd run of the year – 4 miles today!” Well done lad and keep it up! I’m pleased I can help in any way I can and tweets like this put a huge smile on my face. It’s what it’s all about.


Thanks again for the support,
