The Directors and Staff of Wearside Pneumatics wish to congratulate our colleague, Jack Stone, on successfully completing the Great North Run last weekend.
While Jack, who is a Sales Administrator working at our offices in the Team Valley Trading Estate, wasn’t quite able to keep up with winner Sir Mo Farah, he did complete the 13.1 mile course in an impressive 2 hours, 7 minutes, 58 seconds.
The Great North Run has been staged annually since 1981 and is the biggest half-marathon in the world, with over 43,000 participants annually. Jack participated in the 2017 edition on behalf of Age UK Gateshead. At the time of writing, he had raised £450 for this fantastic local charity, through a combination of online and offline donations.
If any of our customers and partners would like to join us in celebrating Jack’s achievement, it is still possible to donate online.
We are proud of Jack for taking on a difficult challenge and making a difference to the lives of local older people.
Jack is part of our fantastic team providing pneumatic solutions and market-leading compressed air solutions to businesses around the North East. To find out more about how we could help your business, contact us today.
