Ex-Newcastle United legend John Anderson and Total Sport presenter Simon Pryde have signed up to lead 130 dare devils undertaking the 150 foot high zip wire challenge at St. James' Park, to raise vital funds for Newcastle United's official charity and support disadvantaged children and their families from across the North East.

Sarah Medcalf, Fundraising Manager, Newcastle United Foundation, said: "Our zip wire challenge takes place on Saturday 20th April 2013 and offers adrenaline junkies, staunch NUFC supporters and 'big birthday' celebrators alike the chance to take a giant leap of faith; benefit from a birds eye view of St James Park, and most importantly make a huge difference to the lives of local families"
