GRANADA newsreader Lucy Meacock revved up a Chester Lions Club fundraiser.

The TV presenter got behind the wheel of a JCB digger to promote the club’s Ladies Driving Challenge at Eaton Park on the weekend of June 6 and 7.

The Countess of Chester hospital’s Relative Comfort Appeal, the Hospice of the Good Shepherd and Chronicle-backed charity Miles of Smiles will all benefit from the proceeds of the event.
