‘Lucky 13’ miles for Pocktoberfest

THE fundraising drive from this year’s annual Pocktoberfest beer & music festival is up and running thanks to some serious legwork from one of their many volunteers.

He was one of 55,000 runners - many of whom were also raising money for charity - doing the course from Newcastle to South Shields.
