Pupils from Thornhill School performed admirably when handing out refreshments as part of the support team at the Great North Run.
Pupils volunteered to help and gave up time on a Sunday, handing out jelly babies to help the tired runners make it to the finish line.
Amongst the weary competititors were 4 runners from the Thornhill staffroom;
Ian Salkeld (only 21 mins behind Mo Farah!!)
Obviously the members of staff were running too fast to take have their picture taken!
Well done to all who took part.
