ONE IN THE VILLAGE
Each year, Children in Need and BBC's flagship nightly programme 'The One Show' team up for a very special fundraising challenge.
The Rickshaw Challenge sees a team of six young people, each with inspirational stories to tell, along with 'The One Show''s Matt Baker (pictured left and below with one young rider, Josh, as they passed through Meifod in mid-Wales), complete a 400-mile trip around Britain.
On Friday 8th November 2019, the challenge passed through Portmeirion ('The One Show' had been live in Portmeirion, but as the rickshaw was travelling behind schedule, the arrival in the village will be shown on Monday 11th at 7.00pm on BBC1).

It's an intresting side note that 'The Prisoner' began filming at Portmeirion, and was completed at a studio complex in Borehamwood, whilst the Rickshaw Challenge finished its first day in Portmeirion, and will be completed at a studio complex at Borehamwood.
