Rickshaw riders' charity relay
THIS sofa must be worn out – but not in the usual way. DFS staff in Bristol rode the cycle sofa rickshaw on a leg of a 400-mile challenge to raise money for BBC Children in Need.
The furniture retailer is aiming to raise £1 million across its stores, as the rickshaw is ridden in relay, stopping off at more than 40 towns and cities.
In Bristol, sales administrator Sophie Neville and warehouse manager John Randall joined Pudsey to complete the second leg of the Pedal for Pudsey challenge, riding from their store in Cribbs Causeway to Bath, via Knowle West Media Centre.
Sophie, a 23-year-old sales administrator, said: "It's going to be tough, but with Pudsey at the helm, I think we'll have a lot of fun along the way. I feel very proud to helping raise money for BBC Children in Need."
The challenge is the third and final instalment of DFS' Extreme Sofa Challenge Series for Children in Need. They have already climbed the UK's three highest peaks carrying sofas and tackled the white water rapids of the London 2012 Olympic course with one mounted on a raft.
