Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge

Ashford town centre has been selected as the first stop on the Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge 2018!

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.

The Challenge begins on Friday 9 November in Calais, where the team will pedal 31 miles through the service tunnel of the Channel Tunnel - a route only travelled previously by the likes of professional cyclists. Once through the tunnel, the team will head north and arrive in Ashford for their first stop of the journey, where they’ll be welcomed by crowds of well-wishers located by the bandstand in Ashford town centre.

Come along with the family & join this community event as we welcome The Rickshaw Riders into Ashford LIVE on National TV. 

Pudsey Bear will also be in town from 6pm greeting visitors & some high street businesses will be staying open late to support the event.
