Sponsoring Hospice of the Valleys Charity Event

Metro Rod Newport, Hereford, and Gloucester have a close relationship with Blaenau-Gwent-based palliative care specialists Hospice of the Valleys.

That's why, whenever we can, we do our best to work with Hospice of the Valleys and sponsor their charity events.

The KAPOW superhero challenge was at Parc Bryn Bach, in Tredegar, on Saturday 8th September, giving people the chance to don their capes and masks by taking on a 5K inflatable obstacle course.

Metro Rod were proud to sponsor one of the obstacles that participants tackled along the route. The obstacle we sponsored was the Bang!

A team of 6 members of Metro Rod staff participated in the event, dressed in a variety of superhero costumes. For example:

  • Thor
  • Robin
  • The Hulk
  • Spiderman
  • The Green Lantern
