She added: “The girls are very proud to represent GBN, with the company logo printed on the home and away kits. We hope to do them proud and win either the league or cup this season, so watch this space!”

 

Bright turnout for the Finsbury Park Race for Life

As the weather was beautiful for this year’s Finsbury Park, Race for Life run, there was a record turnout, and GBN played their part in raising £80,000 for Cancer research. The GBN girls (L-R) Corrine (first left) Hailey (centre) and Karen (far right) along with friends Keeley and Abi raised over £1,500 for their efforts.

“We’ve all had a great day, particularly as the weather was so beautiful. It’s fun running as a team and on a personal note, I was really pleased with my time, and it gives me something to work on for next year. And it would be great to get even more of the GBN team involved next year,” said Karen Smith.raceforlifeedit
