We are two graduates from Vertu Motors (Tom Kirton and Jonny Urwin) who are walking from our Support Centre in Gateshead (NE11 0XA), to Bristol Street Motors' very first dealership on Bristol Street in Birmingham (B5 7AZ).

This is a 210 mile walk across five days. We estimate walking time to be 14 hours per day.

We will also be visiting the below dealerships on the way, with one person from each dealership walking the next leg of the walk with us!

  • Bristol Street Motors Ford Durham (Geoff Skinner and Neil Cowie)
  • Bristol Street Motors Nissan Darlington
  • Bristol Street Motors Vauxhall Knaresborough (Jonathan Oakes)
  • Farnell Land Rover Leeds (Elise Minvielle)
  • Bristol Street Motors SEAT Barnsley
  • Bristol Street Motors Nissan/Volvo Sheffield
  • Bristol Street Motors Peugeot Chesterfield
  • Bristol Street Motors Renault Derby (Richard Jennens)
  • Bristol Street Motors Citroen Burton
  • Bristol Street Motors Vauxhall Lichfield
  • Bristol Street Motors Ford Birmingham
We're aiming to raise £1,000 for Children in Need, so any support at all would be hugely appreciated!
