Global Entrepreneur Sara Davies is putting her running shoes on for this year’s Great North Run in support of her local NHS Charity.

Sara said, “I am so thrilled to be doing the Great North Run for County Durham & Darlington NHS Foundation Trust Charity and love that I’m able to combine my love of running with providing much-needed support for our NHS Charity in its 75th year.

“I’ll be fundraising to help transform an outdoor space where patients recovering after critical illness (RaCI) can undergo rehabilitation, following what can be many weeks or months of being in a hospital ward. We have all had to use our wonderful NHS service at some point in our lives and our local trusts have such a positive impact on so many families in the community. I hope I can do everyone proud!

Pat Chambers Charity Development Manager at CDDFT Charity said, “We’re absolutely delighted to have Sara’s support, she is such a fantastic person and much-loved celebrity not only for her entrepreneurial skills, as demonstrated with her own business Crafter’s Companion but inspiring and investing in so many other entrepreneurs as part of her Dragons’ Den role.

“Sara and the Crafter’s Companion team are recognised for their support of local charities and we cannot thank her enough for taking on this challenging event for us. I’m sure after her time on the dance floor with Strictly, she will be fleet of foot as part of this year’s Great North Run.”
