• Adam and Mick Run for the Sunshine Fund


GNR Victory for Adam and Mick

Winn Solicitors staff Adam Robinson and Mick Davis took part in one of the region’s biggest sporting events this Sunday - the Great North Run.

The pair both completed the 13.1 mile run from Newcastle upon Tyne to South Shields in impressive time, with Adam finishing in 1:59 and Mick in 1:35.

Adam and Mick ran as part of the 100-strong Sunshine Fund team, which was sponsored by Winn Solicitors. The £1500 sponsorship donation from Winns enabled the team to have Sunshine Fund vests made up, to promote the charity throughout the event.

Mick and Adam also raised an impressive £498.42 which will go towards providing specialised equipment to children with disabilities in the North East of England.

When asked about the run, Adam said: “The run went well, it was my first time running the GNR and I hit the target I had set myself. I was proud to take part in the Great North Run, I hadn’t realised just how big of an occasion it was. The atmosphere was amazing and the crowd really got behind the runners. I would recommend taking part and would definitely look to run again.”

Mick added: ”On what was a very hot day, I enjoyed my first ever Great North Run - so much so I will be back next year. There was an excellent atmosphere throughout the 13.1 miles, and a great turn out by the public. Let’s see if I can knock some time of next year's run, as I’m not getting any younger!”
