Stratford hostel manager prepares to pound the pavement for children's charity

Catherine Thompson 23rd Aug, 2019 Updated: 23rd Aug, 2019

A YOUTH hostel manager from Stratford is aiming to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and families when she takes on the Great North Run.

Youth Hostel Association (YHA) duty manager Sarah Breakell is preparing to take to the streets of Newcastle on September 8 for the half marathon to raise money for the hostel’s charity Supported Breaks.

The funds will support short breaks away for school pupils, families who are grieving or coping with illness and people with challenging lives.

Sarah, who recently ran the London Marathon for the first time, is aiming to raise £500 for the charity.

She told the Observer: “I feel that everyone deserves the opportunity to explore, and this is a great way for me to give something to young people and families who have challenging lives. Working for YHA, I have seen first hand the impact a stay away from home can have on wellbeing, it’s inspiring to be a part of that.”
