TV presenter Matt Baker rode through Penwortham today as part of his 450-mile journey to raise money for Children in Need.
Baker rides alongside Team Rickshaw, powered by give young riders, and Prestonians were out to cheer him along the route.
Baker told Digital Spy: “We’re hoping that Team Rickshaw will raise more than ever, so the pressure is really on for the riders. And of course, to the Great British public, we need your support.
“It’s such a fantastic fundraiser, where people who’ve benefited from the charity first-hand can really give back, and this year we’ll be getting much more of an insight into their own stories, which brings opportunities and challenges of its own.
“Alex and I have both previously taken on the Rickshaw Challenge so we understand how tough it can be. We will support them every step of the way. ”
Matt was snapped by Penwortham resident Heather Crook who saw him coming up Liverpool Road.
