THE One Show will be stopping off in Hook as the team travels through Hart in this year’s Rickshaw Challenge for Children in Need.

A team of six young people, all of whom have been supported by BBC Children in Need-funded projects, will be joined by The One Show’s Matt Baker on the eight-day challenge as team cycles a 423 mile route, starting on Friday, 9 November in Calais, France.

Team Rickshaw will cycle into Hook on Sunday, 11 November, and will be stopping off at Hook Junior School at around 7pm.

People are welcome to come out to support the team and see this year’s new rickshaw in person.

Chairman of Hart District Council, Councillor Wendy Makepeace-Browne, said: “The Rickshaw Challenge is such a fun event and raises a huge amount of money for Children in Need, so it is exciting that Hart can play a part this year. I hope our residents come out to cheer on Team Rickshaw, and better still, join in with the new public initiative.”

Headteacher of Hook Junior School, Lynn Martin, said: “This is a great opportunity for the children at the school and the local community in Hook to help raise money for Children in Need.

“We hope as many people as possible will come out to show their support.”
