A SCARBOROUGH fisherman has donated his latest Great North Run haul to the Sea Cadets.
Fred Normadale presented the youngsters with a cheque for £4,230 after completing the 13-mile charity run last month.
Half of the amount was from Mr Normandale’s own pocket, as he had promised to match the amount given by sponsors.
He said: “I’m really pleased – it’s more than I thought I’d raise.
“I had great support from friends, members of the public and my own fishing vessels.”
Mr Normandale gave a special thank you to all the staff and customers in the Leeds Arms and Harbour View Cafe.
All the money will go towards a fund for building work to be carried out at the Sea Cadet Hall in East Sandgate, which is in need of renovation and repair.
Mr Normandale is a regular participant in the Great North Run and said this year’s event had a great atmosphere. He was also pleased to knock three minutes off last year’s time, finishing in two hours 33 minutes.
