Fundraisers from The One Show were in King’s Lynn on Wednesday as part of their national challenge.

A team from the BBC show, which included presenter Matt Baker, stopped off along the town’s waterfront at King’s Staithe Square with their Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge.

They were greeted by crowds of well-wishers and an image of Pudsey Bear, the Children in Need appeal mascot, was projected on to the Bank House.

The team has embarked on a 470-mile cycle challenge from Scotland to London with the aim to cross the finish line today in time for the live Children in Need show.

Young people who have been supported by appeal projects have been pedalling the rickshaw, accompanied by Mr Baker.

Their arrival in Lynn was the sixth day of the eight-day challenge. The team had cycled 60-miles from Skegness and yesterday they headed off on another 60-mile stretch to Duxford. The rickshaw travelled through Terrington St Clement en route to Lynn and was due to pass through Wimbotsham, Denver and Downham Market on its way to Duxford.

It was an emotional live broadcast which showed footage of one of the young team members meeting up with his life-saving bone marrow donor.

During the filming, members of the Lynn Minster choir held up numbers which showed the challengers had at that point raised more than £1 million.

Collectors also took donations on the night from members of the crowd and local groups.
