A CHARITY fund-raiser is appealing for public support ahead of the toughest challenge of his life.
Steve Bateman will cycle, row and walk all the way from the Eiffel Tower in Paris to London Bridge in May.
The 44-year-old is part of a 12-strong group aiming to complete the mammoth 330-mile distance in just four days.
And he’s calling on residents to get right behind his bid to raise £5,000 for the Donna Louise Hospice.
Steve, from Oakamoor, has completed three epic fund-raising events in the past.
But he expects the ‘Tower to Tower’ challenge, featuring three different disciplines, to be his biggest test yet.
