Space hoppers and broomstick among the forms of transport for charity relay

Everything from a wheelbarrow to a broomstick will be used for an unusual charity trip from Maidenhead to Windsor on Sunday.

Members of the Rotary Club of Maidenhead Bridge and Maidenhead Rotaract will be using as many forms of transport as possible as part of a charity relay involving rotary clubs across the Thames Valley.

Bikes, skateboards and space hoppers will also be used when the members set off from the Sounding Arch and head along the Jubilee River for Around the Thames Valley in 80 Ways, being joined along the way by the Rotary Club of Windsor St George.

The event is raising money for wheelchair charity WheelPower, and the team hope to raise £3,000 to pay for a sports wheelchair.

Maidenhead Bridge member Melissa Tomlinson said: "I think it's a brilliant way to raise awareness of the charity."

The trip kicks off at 10am.
