TWO sisters will be taking part in the junior Great North run on Saturday to raise money for a nearby animal sanctuary.

Kirsty Kelmsley (16) and younger sister Chelsie (13) will run the 4k course in aid of Hope Animal Sanctuary near Loftus where her gran helps out.

Kirsty said: “We did it last year for Eskdale school and when we said we were doing it again our gran said why don’t you do it for Hope, and it is close to our hearts.

“With it being for animals we are hoping we will get more sponsors.”
