Wherever we can a few people associated with true faith will do a few bits and pieces in aid of charity. In the last few years that has involved three lads from our main group of contributors running in the Great North Run for various charities and may I thank those of you who have sponsored them etc. The fanzine itself has done a few a things over the years – with the current Pavel Is A Geordie, Sir Bobby t-shirts and support for the Check’Em Lads testicular cancer charity amongst them.
We’ll continue to do that, particularly if it means supporting good causes in the North East of England and which have a Tyneside or Newcastle United flavour.
I think those that know our deputy editor, Gareth Harrison will confirm what a great lad he is – very honest, affable and good company. Just like his old man, Ronnie and I’m proud to call the pair of them good friends. The post below is part of Gareth’s New Year challenge and everyone associated with true faith will be wishing him well as watching very closely at his commitment to clean living.
Nee beer or tabs? Are you sure?
Anyway, Gareth has chosen the mental health charity, MIND as the beneficiary of his efforts and as you can see below has already set up a Just Giving page for those who wish to donate a few bob here and there. It will all mount up and it will all be gratefully received.
Gareth is going to give us regular updates about his training and the various marathons and runs he participates in.
I’m sure any messages of support in the comments boxes will be most appreciated.
On behalf of all of us who put this fanzine together for you, all the best mate.
Michael Martin, Editor, true faith, Newcastle United Fanzine.

1000 Miles Run
dropping feats of endurance then you’re likely to be bitterly disappointed. ‘Amble Along like a Twat from Sherburn who looks like he’s shit himself’ doesn’t have the same ring as ‘Run Geordie Run’ anyway. Norris McWhirter won’t be calling round ours any time soon, partly because he died over a decade ago but also because there’s probably people run a thousand mile in a week, whereas I’m going to be doing it over a calendar year starting on New Years Day and the Editor has egged me on to keep our lovely readers informed of my upcoming aches, pains and gut wrenching sobriety.
