Donations flood in for East Lindsey's Great North Runners
RUNNERS from the East Lindsey area have raised hundreds of pounds for charity after taking part in the Great North Run.
For Shan Chapman and her partner Max Foreman from Skegness, they were running for charities in tribute to three people.
Shan took part in the run for the third time in aid of the Stroke Association in memory of her grandma, Pat Fountain, who passed away 12 years ago.
Pat was well known in Skegness for coaching football, netball and swimming.

Shan's partner Max raised funds for CRY - Cardiac Risk in the Young - in tribute to his friend Craig Rawlinson, and for LIVES first responders in memory of Jimmy Whattam.
Craig, from Burgh-le-Marsh, died last year after he collapsed and hit his head during football training.
James, from Skegness, died aged just 18 following a car crash on the A158 Burgh-le-Marsh bypass in January last year.
“Max lost two friends so he wanted to do something for charity in their names.
“All our chosen charities are close to our hearts.
“Skegness is a small community and there will be a lot of people who know all three we were fundraising for.
“When we got back to Skegness we were welcomed back to The Vine for a celebration with friends.”
Max completed the challenge - his first ever Great North Run - in two hours and seven minutes.
So far he has raised almost £1,500.
Shan finished in two hours and 26 minutes.
She has now set her sights on taking part in next year’s London Marathon.
“We want to do a lot more for our chosen charities to raise awareness and hope to organise some fundraising events soon.”
This year, she has raised £1,575 and from all three Great North Run events, Shan has raised in excess of £3,000 for the Stroke Association.
The couple also held a fundraising night at the Red Lion in Burgh-le-Marsh, where they raised more than £1,000.
