Pedalling For Pudsey at the Swindon Designer Outlet

Hundreds hop on and help BBC Wiltshire with their pedal-bus fundraising

As part of BBC Wiltshire's fundraising efforts for Children In Need, breakfast show presenter Ben Prater cycled around Swindon all week on a pedal-bus - with a little help from passers-by & shoppers!

Tuesday 14 November 2017
Joined by members of the BBC Wiltshire team, Ben stopped at various locations throughout the week, including McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Swindon on Tuesday 14th November 2017, where they encouraged the local community to get involved and 'Pedal For Pudsey'.

Doing a lap!
A single lap of McArthurGlen Swindon is 0.8 miles and the pedal-bus did multiple laps during its three hour visit to help reach BBC Wiltshire's 100 mile target by the end of the week.
Shoppers took the chance to pedal for two or twenty minutes, with everyone over the age of ten invited to hop on one of the eight saddles to propel the pedal-bus and help reach the target.
During their visit to McArthurGlen Swindon, BBC Wiltshire also raised money by encouraging everyone to put on a pair of Pudsey ears.

Joining them, The Great Western Harmony NHS Staff Choir also performed live at McArthurGlen Swindon to motivate the riders and entertain spectators.
