Dear Supporters,

We are delighted that Cycling Without Age Stockton on Tees Chapter (brought to you by Hand In Hand Activities CIC) has been chosen to benefit from the Co-op Local Community Fund.

At a time when funds for community groups and charitable organisations are becoming more difficult to access, we’re incredibly grateful for this opportunity to make a real difference in Stockton on Tees.

We are raising funds to support the delivery and expansion of our Cycling Without Age programme across the Borough and deliver sociable trishaw rides to more people facing social isolation.

Any money received will go towards the expansion of Cycling Without Age Stockton on Tees. The expansion will include purchasing a wheelchair accessible trishaw, offering more trishaw rides, training more trishaw pilots and raising the profile of the amazing work carries out by the Cycling Without Age initiative.

To help us raise vital funds, we’ll be relying on Co-op members. When a member buys selected products or services from the Co-op they earn a five per cent reward for themselves, with a further one per cent for local causes like ours.  

The Co-op is looking to support organisations that make a difference in their local communities by protecting & improving community spaces, helping people reach their full potential by developing their skills, or promoting health and wellbeing.

Co-op members can choose our cause by going online to We really hope that people will visit the website and choose to support us – whether from Stockton or further afield. Members across the country can support Cycling Without Age Stockton on Tees.

If you’re not a member and would like to support us, you can join at your local store or online at

When a community comes together we’re able to achieve great things, so we hope you can help promote our project. For more information about us, please visit

Yours sincerely,

Alison Watson-Shields
