Team Rickshaw drop in on Lookers Mercedes-Benz Stoke

The One Show’s Rickshaw Challenge 2017 is in full swing and this week Team Rickshaw made a pit stop at Lookers Mercedes-Benz Stoke.

Team Rickshaw, which is made up of young people supported by BBC Children in Need funded projects, are taking on The Rickshaw Challenge and travelling 500 miles from London to Glasgow over nine days. To assist the team on their journey, Lookers are providing a fleet of support vehicles, offering storage for important kit and equipment as well as transport for the support teams along the way.

Day four of their 500 mile route through the UK, saw the team visit Mercedes-Benz Stoke, for some well needed refreshments. No doubt feeling tired from their gruelling ride up the west coast of the UK, braving cold weather and multiple terrains, the riders enjoyed a hot drink and a rest at the dealership, as well as some food to fuel them for the rest of their journey.

Travelling over 60 miles per day, it’s not an easy route but the camaraderie of the team and the knowledge they are raising money for such a wonderful charity, one that has directly helped them, keeps them going.

After navigating country lanes and winding muddy roads, the support cars needed a good clean and the staff at Mercedes-Benz Stoke were all too keen to help out.

Greg Bethell, General Manager at Mercedes-Benz Stoke said: “It’s been a pleasure having Team Rickshaw come to visit us on their route. It’s great to meet young people that have been helped by BBC Children in Need and to see them take part in The Rickshaw Challenge to raise money for this fantastic charity. They have inspired us to take part in our own Rickshaw (or maybe cycle) challenge in our dealership. Watch this space!”

Since we announced our partnership with BBC Children in Need, we have been ‘doing our thing’ for the charity, be it bake sales or marathons, sponsored silences or dress-up days, and with BBC Children in Need’s appeal night days away, it will be great to see how much more money we can raise for Pudsey.

This year’s Rickshaw Challenge started last Thursday at the BBC studios in London, where the riders set off ready to brave the elements and raise money for BBC Children in Need. Now on day five, the team are aiming to arrive in Glasgow during BBC Children in Need’s 2017 Appeal Show this Friday 17th November. Lookers will be cheering them on every step of the way.
