H’Angus the Monkey is in training for the Great North Run and he needs as many Pools supporters as possible to get behind him and help raise funds for Alice House Hospice.
The monkey mascot likes to set himself an annual challenge to raise money for a good cause and this year our cuddly friend is dusting off his running shoes for the world-renowned event in September.
It’s the second time that H’Angus will have taken part in the Great North Run, having raised funds for the Finlay Cooper Fund in completing it back in 2013.
And the big-hearted monkey – played by Michael Evans – has also previously walked from the Club’s training ground in Durham all the way to Victoria Park in the name of charity so it’s no surprise he’s up for the challenge again!
H’Angus is joining a group of around 20 Pools fans for the 13.1mile course in Tyneside and it’s hoped they can attract lots of donations for Alice House Hospice, which needs around £5,000 every day to continue its fine work.
Fans can make a donation to H’Angus in the Club’s Ticket Office at The Vic or head to his official Just Giving page by clicking here now.
