Wheelchair Steve’s Metro 60 Charity Challenge

Wheel Chair Steve

The Metro 60 Charity Challenge will take place on Tuesday 26th April 2016 with a target to raise £60,000 for 11 charities based in the North East of England.

Steve Wilkinson (“WheelchairSteve“), assisted by Paul Lawton and Phil Pugh, will board the 6.04AM train from Newcastle Airport Metro Station. They will get off at Callerton moments later, where they will wait until next train arrives and board that train. This process will continue at each station until all 60 Tyne & Wear Metro Stations have been visited.

It is estimated that, allowing for breaks, the entire Metro 60 Charity Challenge will take about 15 hours, so it’s expected to finish at St. James’ at around 9.00 – 9.30pm.
