Where Next Association manager taking part in Great North Run
1:20pm Wednesday 5th September 2012 in News
THE manager of Shades of Green, at the Where Next Association charity, is normally found supporting people with learning disabilities in their gardening and landscaping work, but he will be donning running shoes again very soon.
Mike Schofield is set to take part in the Great North Run again on Sunday, September 16. He has previously run two half marathons, completed the London Marathon three times and taken part in the Redditch marathon.
This is the fourth run he has done in aid of Where Next and says it is possibly his last.
All proceeds Mr Schofield raises will go directly towards providing supported employment and training for local people with special needs.
To sponsor him, cheques, made payable to Where Next Association, can be sent to Great North Run Sponsorship, Where Next Association, Wellesbourne Close, Easemore Road, Redditch B98 8ER.
If people would like to add Gift Aid, they should visit wherenextassociation.co.uk where forms are available, or they can visit Where Next in Easemore Road and fill in a form while there.
