The Great North Run
It's a couple of weeks since we have posted here, but Tom has been busy with gigs and holidaying in the Lake District. In that short time he has performed at Marabini's in Morpeth, La Torre in Bedlington (where they are busy putting the final touches to what will be a fabulous re-fit) and The Boat Inn, up at Kielder. He has been back to Kielder no fewer than four times since our last post, and is there again this coming Tuesday.
September looks like being even busier, as he brings his Summer season up at Kielder to a close, and has gigs, at Marabini's, La Torre, Alnwick Garden and The Old Storehouse, as well as a number of private gigs, as far afield as York and Northampton.
The gig in Northampton, a week on Sunday, is for The Child Growth Foundation, a charity which ha been very supportive of Tom and his family over the years. This Sunday, Tom's Mum is running in The Great North Run, for the first (and possibly only!) time, and helping to raise much needed funds for this important charity. Yesterday, Anna Foster of Magic Radio Newcastle 1152 interviewed Ruth on air, as Anna highlights some of the less well known charities that hope to benefit from the Great North Run.
We missed the very start when Anna asked Ruth - "This is the first time you have run the Great North Run, but do you think it will be the last?!" you can listen to what followed towards the top of the right hand sidebar on the homepage.
If you feel able and would like to support Ruth in her run, please visit her sponsorship page here. Anything you can donate will be really, really appreciated! Thank you!
Meanwhile, you see Tom performing next at Marabini's tomorrow night - Friday 5th September, and at La Torre on Saturday night - 6th September
