Peugeot are once again joining forces with BBC Children In Need to provide support for the Rickshaw challenge. For this year’s BBC Children In Need Rickshaw Challenge, six young riders will be cycling a 470-mile route from Jedburgh on the Scottish Borders to the BBC Studios in London.
The One Show will be covering the entire trip, from the
beginning of the journey on the 11
th of November to the finish on the 18th,
and Peugeot will be providing road support throughout. This is the
fifth year Peugeot has been an official BBC Children In Need fundraiser,
raising over £1.3 million as the sole car manufacturer partner.
To date the Challenge has raised more than £12 million
and in keeping with tradition, the young riders will not only test
their pedal power, but also their mettle, as they deliver speeches to a
live audience explaining their motivations for taking on the challenge
The team hopes their efforts will not only help them raise money, but awareness of the real difference being made to disadvantaged children and young people’s lives across the UK thanks to the Charity.
