Viewranger supports BBC Children In Need Rickshaw Challenge

Posted on 08/11/2012

We are delighted to be supporting this year's BBC’s Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge, as they cycle from Landudno to Television Centre in London - a gruelling 411 miles in just 8 days, starting on Friday 9th November.

The Rickshaw Challenge team is made up of six young people who have all benefited from Children in Need funded projects and are determined to show what they can achieve.  They hope to better the £1.9 million raised by Matt Baker last year when he went from Edinburgh to London.

The youngsters, supported by Matt, will take it in turns to pedal the rickshaw as it makes it way from Llandudno in North Wales to London across demanding terrain in potentially harsh weather conditions. Alex Jones will also join the team rallying support along the way.

Children in Need raises vital funds for disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Every day viewers will be able to follow Team Rickshaw’s live progress online using the map & tracker page,  as they travel from Llandudno to London.

To Donate £5, text “TEAM’ to 70705. Texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message, £5 will go to BBC Children in Need, registered charity number 802052 (England and Wales) SC039557 (Scotland).
