Peugeot helps Children in Need’s ‘Rickshaw Challenge’

Thursday, November 15 2012

Peugeot is helping out BBC One’s ‘One Show’, with its Rickshaw Challenge for Children in Need. The Challenge consists of the show’s presenter, Matt Baker along with a group of young people, pedalling a rickshaw 411 miles across the country, raising as much money as possible along the way for the fundraising marathon.

The group’s journey began on the 9th November in Llandudno, Wales, and will finish tomorrow night (15th) during The One Show’s Children in Need special. As can be imagined, such an effort requires some help from trusty vehicles and that’s where Peugeot comes in! So far, the manufacturer’s LCVs have been used as filming support vehicles, as well as acting as living space for the team while they complete their challenge. Tim Zimmerman, Peugeot UK’s managing director said;

‘Living on the road for eight days is no mean feat and although the team this year is made up of very capable and no doubt brave young people, it’s essential that Team Rickshaw has a reliable and robust convoy of vehicles able to provide backup, regardless of the terrain or weather.’
