Revving Fostering Up a Gear in the North East

Archived: Posted August 12, 2013

Motorbike enthusiasts from the North East had the chance to find out about fostering when they flocked to Durham’s BikeWise event on the 28th July.

Lee, a senior support worker and Andy, a foster carer, ran the fostering information stand – not only did they get the chance to speak to plenty of people about fostering but they also took the opportunity to showcase their own sets of wheels too! They had spent hours preparing their unique bikes for the event, with Lee showcasing his freshly rebuilt, 1971 Norton Cammando (Norvill) Racer and Andy displaying his 2.3 litre Triumph Rocket 111.

The day was a great success, despite the bad weather. Lee says: “Thousands of people came to the event despite the early rain and our bikes proved very popular in attracting people to our stand. We spoke to lots of families about fostering and the youngsters loved sitting on our bikes.”

Looks like Alison, our supervising social worker, had fun!
