St Albans was on the route for this year’s Children in Need Rickshaw Challenge, and hundreds of people turned out to watch its progress.
The NewsHound team went along to see what it was like and meet people in the crowd to find out why they had come along.
The rickshaw was the final leg of its 400-mile journey, which started at Holyhead and ended at BBC's Elstree Studios that evening.
BBC presenter Matt Baker and his team of six young riders passed through Wheathampstead and Sandridge before reaching the city. Hundreds of adults and children - some in pyjamas - waited to greet the team as they came past.
NewsHound is a regular news round-up for children, explaining a local news item in an engaging way. It hopes to get them excited and informed about this historic district.
Other episodes have focussed on the problems with World Mental Health Day, St Albans Cathedral's Space Voyage, and a new beehive installed at the George Street Canteen.
The most recent episode is presented by Herts and Cambs group editor Matt Adams.
NewsHound reporters would really love to hear from children in the community who would like to feature on an episode.
