Cycling Without Age was invited to pitch at Stockton Soup, at ARC in Stockton, in July for some community funding towards the launch of our Stockton Chapter of Cycling Without Age which involves purchasing our first trishaw.
Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores awarded to local community projects.
Hand In Hand Activities Director, Mark Shields, took a break from his day job to join us at John Whitehead Park and experience the trishaw first hand.
The smiles on their faces when they returned said it all, even though it was snowing!
Stockton resident, Grace, was among the first to be taken for a spin around John Whitehead Park when the Cycling Without Age founder Ole Kassow and Pernille Bussone attending the Young At Heart ULO event of Monday 5th February.
Hand In Hand Activities Director, Phil Keene, was among the throng of volunteers eager to experience piloting the trishaw and once he boarded the pilot seat it was incredibly difficult to get him off it!
Hand In Hand Activities CIC is excited to announce that our application to establish a Cycling Without Age Chapter in Stockton on Tees has been accepted and work is now underway to raise the £7,000 needed to purchase the first of our fleet of trishaws.
