Keep on running

Leeds Building Society employee Matthew Platten raised £1,200 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association by recently taking part in the Great North Run.

The Mortgage Lending team member ran the 13.1 mile course from Newcastle-upon-Tyne to South Shields in one hour, 59 minutes.

The money raised includes £400 in matched funding from Leeds Building Society.

Matthew (pictured right, with friends), lives in East Boldon and works at the Leeds’ Silverlink office. He said: “I am delighted to have raised £1,200 in total, and would like to thank everyone who sponsored me and Leeds Building Society for providing matched funding.”
