Seaton-based Re:Store Axe Valley has launched a crowdfunding appeal for a Trishaw.

The charity has a target to raise £10,000 to buy a purpose-built e-Trishaw, which will be used by people of all ages to be taken on trips, by volunteers, along the seafront and wetlands.

They say this will help people 'stay curious, bring enrichment and connection to their community and environment.' 

Cycling Without Age, the international network Re:Store will join to provide the project, is about letting people age in a positive way, reducing isolation for many and helping give purpose.  

Donating £250 or £500 gets your organisation/business/individual name or logo on the Trishaw. Plus our web page and social media

Donating £1,000 or more gets your name/logo the Trishaw and a volunteer Hi-Viz safety gear, and the volunteer t-shirts. Plus our web page and social media.

To support the project Re:Store's owncommunity co-ordinator and director ran the Grizzly yesterday.  

Ben Tucker said "Running the Grizzly was especially beastly this year with the wet weather we've had! However, knowing I was running to help bring funds together for a Seaton Trishaw made each stride a little easier."
