Excited children from local schools were cheering on The One Show’s Rickshaw Challenge as it passed through our area today (Wednesday).

At a stop off to meet Sutterton schoolchildren, One Show presenter Matt Baker told us: “It’s been amazing cycling through Lincolnshire and arriving at Fourfields School today.

“A huge thanks to everyone for coming out and cheering us on, it’s really appreciated and makes another memorable day. Please do keep supporting this amazing team.”

Children from Holbeach Bank School also turned out to cheer on the rickshaw pedallers and, in Long Sutton, pupils lined the main street to wave through the Children in Need fundraising heroes. Youngsters wore Pudsey hats and held placards aloft to show their support.

The rickshaw is being pedalled by six young children on a 470-mile journey from Scotland to central London.
