Pedal Power!

Stockton's Mayor and Mayoress, alongside representatives from local MPs and Trustees and staff said a huge THANK YOU to Norman and his son Sam Franklin.  The Franklins – a local family who chose to celebrate a milestone birthday in an inspiring, generous and strenuous way.  They cycled from Lands End to John O’Groats over 3 weeks, a journey totalling over 1000 miles, with hills equating to more than twice the ascent of Mount Everest.  Norman Franklin, 89, and three of his sons (Andrew, 60; Tom 58 and Sam 54) and two of their partners Caroline Elton and Anne Bulmer used their pedal power to really move up a gear and raise £100,000 for a number of local and national charities, choosing A Way Out as local beneficiaries.
