Whitehaven to Tynemouth - and all for charity

Everyone look out for local fundraiser Ian Fenwick, who this July will run, swim, cycle and canoe from Whitehaven in Cumbria through the Lake District, all the way to Tynemouth.

You may ask why - well, the sports enthusiast aims to run £15,000 for his favourite good causes, St Oswald's Hospice and The Retired Greyhound Trust.

We've been helping out with a bit of PR support and with a page in the Journal and a feature on Sky Tyne & Wear already, it's no wonder awareness of his campaign is on the up.

Please do take a look at his website, www.catoonamission.co.uk, as he prepares for his journey and if you can, please donate money or support in kind too. Many thanks!
