SHOPPERS were given a helping hand to carry their bags when they were offered a free rickshaw ride in Middlesbrough.

Hillstreet Shopping Centre offered shoppers a free ride to the door of their car, to the bus or train station, or even to their front door if they live within a mile of the centre, as a way of saying thank you after a successful summer.

Centre manager Peter Drabble said: “We have had a really great summer this year, but we couldn’t have done this without our customers’ continued support. We pride ourselves as operating at the heart of our community and so we wanted to give something back to our local customers."

Hillstreet customers can enjoy a free rickshaw ride tomorrow (Friday, August 29) from the main entrance of the shopping centre to anywhere within a one-mile radius of the centre.
