Dave goes the extra mile for Children In Need

A Radio Clatterbridge presenter is going the extra mile to raise money for Children In Need.

Volunteer Dave Harvey, an AA driving instructor during the week, will be taking part in the Big Learner Relay.

Dave Harvey and his spotty car

Dave will carry the Pudsey Topbox on the roof of his car during a driving lesson for the local leg of its 3,000 mile journey around the country.

The event, which is now in its third year, has already raised £165,000 for the BBC charity.

"It’s such a pleasure to take part in this year’s event. Not only is it raising money for a worthwhile cause but the relay also promotes the importance of good quality training for drivers." - Presenter Dave Harvey

A number of learner drivers and their instructors will form a line of spotty cars behind Dave on Thursday 10th November as he makes his way from Rock Park in Birkenhead to Liverpool.

The special Children In Need livery on each car can be sponsored, spot by spot.

Anyone wishing to donate towards the event can visit justgiving.com/CHAreaBLR2016 or text EPBH53 £Amount to 70070.
