Today marks day 12 on Pete & Hannah Boatfield’s quest to cover 4,500 miles in the aid of a Banjul hospital and the journey thus far has certainly been eventful to say the least.

Twelve years in and Metro Broadcast continues to screen The Oscars to The Academy’s London members at the prestigious RAC Club. The elite event, held on Monday night (March 3rd), usually runs one night after the live event in Hollywood – allowing for the time difference.

When considered in terms of available transportation routes, the journey comes to over 3,500 miles or 5,500km!

As I’m sure all of our avid readers are aware, one of Metro’s own is set to embark on an adventure as promising as it is inspiring. Get used to hearing the name Pete Boatfield on this blog because we at Metro Broadcast couldn’t be prouder of our “freelancer-turned-fundraiser”.
