Ready for a post-lockdown adventure? Join us on the London 10 Peak Challenge
After 13 weeks of lockdown life, how much do you fancy lacing up your walking boots, getting out in the open and taking on a challenge with a difference?
Well, we’ve got just the thing for you in the form of our new charity fundraising campaign – Metro.co.uk Lifeline. With your help, we are supporting The Hygiene Bank; an amazing charity that looks after families in desperate need of every day essentials.
To raise vital funds for them, we’ve organised a sponsored 26-mile hike across London which will not only offer the opportunity to really push yourself, but also take crucial steps in supporting people affected by poverty along the way.

Taking place on Saturday September 19, 2020, to tie in with National Hygiene Week (September 14-20) and starting in north London, our specially-created route explores 10 of the city’s hidden ‘Peaks’ and covers a variety of terrain from footpaths to forest.
In fact, this unique challenge also promises to take our team of trekkers through beautiful woodland, thriving nature reserves and quieter spaces of London that they never knew existed.
From the off, we’ll enjoy unexpected views as we conquer each secret summit, some on part of the ‘London Loop’, and our brilliant adventure will end with a well-deserved socially distant drink at a pub. (Along with that warm and fuzzy feeling that you’ve done something pretty amazing for charity.)
If that wasn’t enough, we’ve already recruited some well-known faces to join us, including Meg Mathews, MP Dawn Butler, TV stylist Kat Farmer and broadcaster and journalist Charlie Webster, with more names to be confirmed nearer the date.
All we expect from our trekkers in return for all this excitement is to raise a minimum of £250!
‘Each and every one of us should have a dignified life. It’s not right that feeling clean should be a luxury or a privilege for anyone in our society,’ explains Lizzy Hall, founder of The Hygiene Bank. ‘And that’s where the readers of Metro.co.uk come in. Yes, we want product donations, but we also need funds to keep on doing what we do. By signing up to this amazing challenge you’ll be raising money that will directly help us, help others.’
So, if this sounds right up your street after three months of being cooped up, please register your interest above.
