Cumbrian blind soldier to tackle marathon for veterans charity

By Jenny Barwise

Last updated at 13:42, Wednesday, 08 April 2015

Blind war veteran Darren Blanks will soon be able to add another gruelling fundraising challenge to his long list of achievements.



The 28-year-old, who has battled through a brain tumour and two bouts of meningitis, will take part in the 26.2-mile Brighton Marathon on Sunday in aid of the Blind Veterans UK charity.

But the father-of-two is no stranger to pushing himself to the limits to raise money for the cause which is close to his heart, as he has so far run the London marathon, Brighton half-marathon and a 100km walk – 63 miles – in just 24 hours between London and Brighton.

Since leaving the Army six years ago, Darren has been diagnosed with Leber’s optic neuropathy, a rare genetic disease which has gradually robbed him of his sight.

And it was following the deterioration of his eyesight, that tests revealed he had a benign brain tumour four years ago.

Memorial fund launched to get defibrillators in Weardale


First published Monday 13 April 2015 in South Durham News

A MEMORIAL fund has been launched to buy defibrillators for one of the Durham Dales in memory of a father who died suddenly of a heart attack.

David Nelson, a builder and father of two from Hill End, Frosterley, in Weardale, died in January this year.

When he was taken ill no ambulances were stationed locally and it took a crew 40 minutes to get to his home from Teesside.

It is now hoped the first defibrillator will be sited at Hill End.

His family said the aim of the new equipment is to fill the gap between an emergency taking place and help arriving at the scene.

Spennymoor boxer's GB dreams inspired by late mate

by Catherine Priestley, Chief Reporter (Sedgefield)

AN amateur boxer whose international dreams were shattered by injury less than a year ago hopes to get them back on track this weekend - as a tribute to his best friend.

Reece Ellis’s hopes of boxing for Great Britain suffered a major setback when he dislocated his shoulder whilst sparring in front of international coaches last summer.

The injury required an operation and the long road to recovery was made harder for the 24-year-old from Spennymoor, County Durham, when his best friend died.

Chrissy Wright, 24, also from Spennymoor, had cystic fibrosis and died in hospital on Friday, March 6.

Mr Ellis said: “He was my biggest fan really, he was at all my fights whenever he was well enough and he’s a big miss.

Hillary Clinton: From North-East mining stock to American presidential candidate

Gavin Havery, Reporter (Derwentside & Tyneside)

TWO generations up her family tree, on Hillary Clinton’s father’s side, is Hugh Rodham, who was born at Oxhill, near Stanley.

The year was 1879 and the area was an industrial powerhouse with many pits across the coal rich countryside.

But three years after Hugh’s birth, his own father, a miner named Jonathan Rodham, for reasons unknown, moved his family to Pennsylvania in the United States, where the boy was raised and went on to marry a Welsh woman named Hannah Jones.

The couple’s son, also named Hugh, was born in 1911 in Scranton, and their granddaughter, Hillary Diane Rodham entered the world in Chicago, Illinois, in 1947.

Her fascinating North-East connections emerged more than 20 years ago when her husband, Bill Clinton, was elected President of the USA, and she in turn became First Lady.

Weardale family reunited with memorial football trophy after Echo appeal

THE family of a Weardale man killed in a tragic mining accident have been reunited with his memorial football trophy after lodging an appeal in The Northern Echo.

John “Malcolm” Lowe, 24, died after an accident at Redburn Mine, in Rookhope, in 1974.

The keen footballer played for both Rookhope and Wolsingham Welfare in the Crook and District League as well as the Blanchland ‘A’ team in the Hexham and District League.

He left behind his wife, Pat, and son John “Paul” Lowe, while Mrs Lowe was so overcome with grief that she did not realise she was also carrying their second child, Kathryn, at the time of his death.

Kathryn was born in 1975 and the family moved to Stanhope where Mrs Lowe had two Malcolm Lowe Memorial Trophies made which she said were to be played for by the local teams to keep her husband’s memory alive.

Cumbrian fundraisers aiming for wheelie bin world record

By Jenny Barwise

Last updated at 12:23, Sunday, 03 May 2015

On your marks, get set... go!



A team of volunteers are hoping to clinch a Guinness World Record as well as raising awareness for a number of much-needed causes, by pushing a wheelie bin through Cumbria.

The West Cumbria Wheelie Bin Challenge takes place next month and organisers are busy pushing ahead with plans and organising routes for the event which has a number of charities and schools on board, supporting causes across Allerdale and Copeland.

Event organiser Andrew George said there currently isn’t a world record for pulling a wheelie bin. But the furthest that one has been recorded being pulled is 26.2 miles in a marathon and is still being assessed by the Guinness World Records.

The west Cumbrian team plans to push their bin 27 miles.

Appeal to reunite First World War medal with soldier's family

AN Army veteran is making an appeal to reunite a First World War medal found in a County Durham village with the soldier’s family.

Colin Hodgson, of West Cornforth, was passed the Victory Medal from a friend who found it while digging the foundations for new houses in Trimdon Village, near Sedgefield.

Mr Hodgson has since worked with local historian Andy Denholm, who has researched the medal and found that it belonged to Robert Henry Brown.

Mr Denholm discovered that Mr Brown was also awarded the 1915 Star and the British War Medal whilst serving in the 15th Durham Light Infantry.
