Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. [/p][p]The [b]Metro 60 Charity Challenge [/b]was a unique one day endurance event aiming to raise funds for Hope 4 Kidz and 10 other North East Charities (see list below). It took place on [b]Tuesday 26th April 2016[/b].[/p][p]In my wheelchair, I, [b]Steve "WheelchairSteve" Wilkinson,[/b] accompanied by good friends and very willing supporters, [b]Paul Lawton[/b] and [b]Phil Pugh[/b], departed from [b]Newcastle Airport Metro Station[/b] at 6:00am and alighted minutes later at [b]Callerton[/b]. We waited there for the next train to arrive, boarded that train and alighted at the next station, [b]Bank Foot[/b].[/p][p]We continued this process at each of the 60 stations on the entire [b]Tyne and Wear Metro Network[/b] until we finally arrived at [b]St. James[/b] at 10.00pm in the evening.[/p][p]Yes, this endurance challenge took 16 hours to complete as we braved the unexpected freezing cold, rain, sleet and snow that greeted us that April day![/p][p]Please sponsor me and my friends for completing this challenge to help the 11 charities.[/p][p][b][span=color: #ff0000;]Just 5p per station (£3) or 10p per station (£6) will be a fantastic donation and will soon mount up.[/span][/b][/p][p]Any business donating £50 will be featured on thr station page alongside our photo at the station of their choice with their logo and a link to their website.More information on our website. [url=http://www.metro60challenge.com][b]www.metro60challenge.com[/b][/url].[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this.
