West Yorkshire care home manager running the Great North Run

11 September 2015

Marie Sharp, service manager and administrator at Wharfedale House, will be among 57,000 runners taking on the Great North Run from Newcastle to South Shields on 13 September.

Marie is looking to raise £1,000 in order to give the home a new sensory garden and a sensory bathroom, after the residents were asked to draw up a wishlist of what they'd most like for the home.

‘We have lovely residents living here that give me the greatest pleasure when I come to work in the morning.

‘They fill my day with joy and great satisfaction so it’s time for me to give something back to them.’ — Marie
