Grace Clark, the brilliant and beautiful 11 year old daughter of local businesswoman and Chef extraordinaire Kim Clark from Evenwood, is undertaking a mammoth 5 mile sponsored run to raise money for NHS staff.

Grace’s Mum posted on her social media account “My little Princess took it upon herself to set this up on her Instagram”. Kim said to WCNG, “It’s a mammoth 5 mile run. Up to now, she has raised £95 and it’s all off of her own back. It’s her own idea and is completely out of her comfort zone. We are so proud of her.

Grace is Autistic so we are making arrangements for the run to be in her Grandparents garden at Bolam. We’ve measured a full circle at 1.1 miles. Grace will attempt to run 5 full circles at noon – so she can eat lunch afterwards”.

Kim herself set about cooking and providing meals shortly after lockdown to vulnerable people and front line workers. As of May 4th, she had provided nearly 8000 meals out of her 10,000 target. With the kind support of her family, friends and volunteers, ‘Team Kim’ have never stopped. You can see the many kindnesses on Facebook page by searching ‘Kim’s Kitchen Evenwood’.

Sponsorship for Grace’s run can be through Mum’s PayPal account: or by contacting Grace & Kim on 07793 974182.
