Sunday 8th September 2019 – The Great North Run
The band played on an open top bus at the Diabetes UK cheer-point in South Shields. We had an excellent view of the elite runners hurtling past before playing to encourage the rest of the field. Favourites included YMCA and Sweet Caroline.
Some of the band members had a slightly more strenuous day, running the 13.1 miles for a range of good causes.
“It was a fun day out, cheering on all the runners”- youngest band member.
