Heron completes the Great North Run

25th September 2016

Dressed as our logo, a Grey Heron, Society Director James Littlewood completed the 2016 Great North Run in 2 hours and 3 minutes. James was doing the run to raise funds to feed wildlife at our Gosforth Park Nature Reserve.

James said, “after 9 miles I wished I had some real wings. There was a fantastic atmosphere and I was helped a lot by the kind folk of South Shields handing out jelly beans along the route!”

Thank you to everyone who sponsored him. Your money will pay for food to feed birds and other wildlife (crafty Badgers) at the nature reserve over the winter.
