Medal for Hallgarth's Jackie

Personal trainer Simon Charlton last year gave Hallgarth Care Home his Great North Run medal and each month one of the residents is awarded it after being put through their paces at their fitness class.

This month's winner was Jackie, who was awarded the medal for her effort after she had a try at all the exercises. Not only did she give it her all, she also sang along with every song!

Jackie said:

"I have never been a runner - the only bit of me that runs is my nose! But I like to give things a try and it's the first real medal I've ever won so I'm very proud."

Well done Jackie - all your hard work paid off!
