Sport Relief Mile in Gateshead
“Volunteers from Tyne United Rowing Club left the riverside to head

Sport Relief Mile on Sunday 21st March.

Learn to Row boats and put it in the lake, however he soon realised
that this probably wouldn’t go down well with the Council events team,
so he decided to stick to the ergos!”
