Children in Need challenge comes to the Bradford district

Cheer on BBC Look North presenters Harry Gration and Amy Garcia as they take part in a tandem ride through the Bradford district raising money for Children In Need.

The presenters will be setting off from Pudsey at around 8.30am on Friday 18 November and are expected to arrive in City Park in Bradford city centre at around 4pm

Their 45 mile route comes through much of the Bradford district including Burley-in-Wharfedale, Ilkley including the Cow and Calf rocks, Addingham, Silsden, Steeton, Keighley, Bingley Five Rise Locks, Shipley and City Park.

The presenters have been taking part in five challenges throughout the week starting with a wing walk on a biplane on Monday, ballroom dancing on Tuesday, abseiling on Wednesday, a selfie challenge on Thursday and finishing off with a tandem ride on Friday.

Pupils from schools across the district will be raising money for Children in Need by holding non-uniform days, dressing in their pyjamas, wearing their spotted t-shirts and selling cakes.

Pupils from Steeton Primary School and Eastwood Primary School, which are both on the route of Harry and Amy’s challenge, will be holding events in the schools and hope to wave them on as they pass by.

Cllr Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Environment Sport and Culture, said: “I want to wish Harry and Amy the best of luck with their challenge on Friday. I’m sure people along the route will come out and wave them on and donate to this worthwhile charity.”
