Bupa Great North Run

On Behalf of Bernese Welfare UK

On Sunday 19th September 2010 Bernese owner Niall MacPherson will don his running shoes once again and will be taking part in the 13 mile course (from Newcastle to Gateshead) of The Bupa Great North Run. Niall has very generously, for the second year, chosen Bernese Welfare UK to be the good cause to benefit from his taking part in the run and is therefore inviting pledges for sponsorship or donations for his completing the course. A pledge, no matter how small will be an extra incentive for Niall and a great help to needy Bernese. Please step forward and offer your support by donating even just a £1 or two to this venture. No donation or offer of sponsorship is too small!

For more information or to make a pledge please contact Niall's wife, Julie, at niallandjuliemac@aol.com
or alternatively to Bernese Welfare UK National co-oordinator, Jude Simonds, at bernerinfo@aol.com or Tel; 01787 371940.

The Bupa Great North Run is the world’s biggest half marathon and more details of the event can be found at


Update September 22nd

Niall completed the run in 2 hours and 4 minutes and would like to thank all those who pledged sponsorship or donations for his completing the course.

September 28th - To date around £400 has been raised. There is still time to show your support for Niall's run if you haven't already done so by donating even just a £1 or two. No donation or offer of sponsorship is too small and every penny raised is spent on needy Bernese - none of the money Bernese Welfare UK receives is diverted to Honorariums or gratuities or administration costs!

Contact Julie as above.
