LiveWire staff and customers raised £700 for Children in Need


STAFF and customers from Warrington’s LiveWire community interest company cycled over 1,200 miles and rised more than £700 for Children in Need.
LiveWire was supporting the annual BBC fundraising extravaganza across its six leisure sites in Warrington.
They took inspiration from the celebrity “Rickshaw Challenge” that saw television presenter Matt Baker and a group of young people cycling 400 miles around Britain on a rickshaw.
LiveWire was bidding to replicate this challenge on stationary bikes in reception areas at its neighbourhood hubs and leisure centres across the borough – with the aim to cycle 400 miles collectively on the day.
In fact the final tally was 1,242 miles cycled – the equivalent of three Rickshaw Challenges. Culcheth Community Campus cycled the furthest on the day with a massive 232 miles.
Staff took it in turns to ride the bikes with customers also encouraged to jump on and have a go – in exchange for a donation to the Children in Need appeal.
The total raised on the day was £733.38.
Emma Hutchinson, managing director of LiveWire, said: “LiveWire staff and customers alike had a lot of fun using pedal power to raise hundreds of pounds for a very worthy cause. Children in Need is a fantastic event that we were delighted to support. Well done to everyone who took part and a huge thank you to everyone who generously donated.”
