Please Support Joseph running for MHNE in the Great North Run 2019

Our young runner in this year’s Great North Run introduces himself:

“I am Joseph Hodgetts and I’m 20 years old, I have just finished my A-levels at Gateshead College and hoping to stay and study in Newcastle. Specifically, Newcastle University to sit a 3 year Bachelor of Arts degree in Media and Film studies. I help in the running of a pop up store with my friend Jack, we sell vinyl records at vintage venues across the North East. I am wanting to run the Great North run for MHNE as I understand the importance of mental health through personal experiences with myself, family and friends. Conclusively, understanding the impact that it can have on people.”
