Biggest ever JDC team runs Great North Run
Jubilee Debt Campaign's team, organised in association with North East CALL TO ACTION (formerly Make Poverty History NE), was our biggest ever, numbering about 55, many of them staff and students at Newcastle University.
The conditions were almost ideal - mainly fine but cool. Congratulations to everyone who took part!
NB. It's not too late to sponsor the runners! You can do so via their fundraising pages on JustGiving (scroll to the bottom).

'Shattered but triumphant' students at the finish.
'The Running Rev' - Revd Roger Mills, who has provided outstanding
support for the debt campaign since its inception.
