The One Show Rickshaw Challenge set off from Lands End last Friday, and is due to make it to the East End of London this Friday.

Six young riders are taking turns to pedal the rickshaw, accompanied by One Show presenter Matt Baker. They are hoping to beat last year’s fundraising total of £2.2million.

A live broadcast will take place on the Palace Pier this evening, with Pudsey the Bear greeting the team as it arrives in Brighton.

You can track the progress of the rickshaw here – at 9.50am it is currently in the heart of the South Downs National Park, passing through Fyning in West Sussex.


And the Palace Pier has invited people to come and greet the rickshaw and meet Pudsey from 6pm onwards.

Since 2011, the Rickshaw Challenge has raised over £7.9 million for BBC Children in Need, with each and every penny going to projects supporting disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK.
