Staff from tax specialist firm, Qubic, will be among 111 runners taking on the Great North Run later this month to raise funds for our Foundation.

We were pleased to be chosen as their nominated charity following a staff vote and this is the first year they will have a team participating in famous half marathon.

The five members of staff taking on the challenge are Chris Mitchell, Peter Durance, James Richardson and Chloe May, while Mungai Wairia, who provides office cleaning services to the firm will also be running.

Chris Mitchell, Associate Director at the firm, will be taking on the Great North Run for the third time.

Chris said: “I have taken part in the Great North Run previously, but I am looking forward to taking part alongside my colleagues this year for such a worthy cause.”

David Graham, Director, added: “The Great North Run is a fantastic event for the North East so I’m delighted that members of staff from across Qubic have decided to get involved whilst supporting such an excellent charity.

“The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation do such worthwhile, pioneering work and I am proud we, as a firm, are supporting that. Good luck everyone!”

Our thanks to all at Qubic and we wish Chris, Peter, James, Chloe and Mungai all the very best for the run.
