Great news for Hand in Hand Activities CIC who has received not 1 but 2 funding awards. These funds will help them launch their new initiative ‘Cycling Without Age’.
Hand in Hand Activities CIC Received the maximum funding of £3,000 from Ropner Park Trust and also received a further £1,500 from Thirteen.
They plan to use this funding to launch their new initiative a Stockton on Tees Chapter of ‘Cycling Without Age’ next year. This is a project which was proposed and began 2 years ago.
The project aims to tackle isolation and associated illnesses in older, disabled people and those who are socially isolated. The ‘Cycling without Age’ project will take out these people on trishaw rides around the local area and parks to help them get out and enjoy our local area. They will be able to meet new people and socialise with people of all ages and generally enjoy what the great outdoors has to offer in Stockton-on-Tees.
Alison Watson-Shields, Director of Hand in Hand Activities CIC said, “We are over the moon! We got the maximum we asked for from the Ropner Trust and also from Thirteen. These funds will help to launch a project we have been trying push for 2 years, the project will help those living in social isolation.”
