A group of Chopwell residents of all ages and fitness levels are doing a virtual journey from Chopwell (which has been known as Little Moscow since the 1926 general strike) to actual Moscow which is 1,870 miles.
We will be walking, running and cycling to get there within 4 weeks.
We are raising money for The Bank project - to convert a derelict former bank building on our high street into a Welfare and Enterprise Centre which will provide vital services to our community including a food bank, support for unemployed people and a credit union. There will also be a community coffee shop run as a social enterprise.
Although Gateshead Council are leasing us the building for free, we have to raise £200,000 to make the building safe and up to building standards.
There is more information about the project on our video.
