BANK HOLIDAY CHALLENGE – END OF DAY 2 UPDATE

***BANK HOLIDAY CHALLENGE – END OF DAY 2 UPDATE***

Wow – well this took off!

We wanted to get to Twickenham and back, well here is where we stand…

Twickenham and back

Murrayfield and back

Millenium Stadium and back

Aviva Stadium and back

We’ve covered a total of over 2200 miles! But we’ve got one more day to go so it seems a shame not to have a go at France as well! So onto the Stade de France we go! An extra 1008 miles, but due to our fantastic efforts, we are already nearly halfway there.

Tomorrow we need to cover around 600 miles or so to make it – one big push would be fantastic – anything you can do would be appreciated, whether than a couple of kilometres walking or a longer run or cycle, everything counts.

And obviously the reason we’re doing all this – we have now raised a total of £3,145 and counting for Gateshead Foodbank – an unbelievable effort and a credit to everyone who has taken part and donated. We know this money is needed and will be put to good use.

So thank you everyone for your efforts, and one last push tomorrow to get to Paris and then back again – we can do it!
