Mother and son cycle 32 miles to raise money for King’s Lynn charity

A MOTHER and son cycled 32 miles together to raise money for a charity that supports adults with learning difficulties.

Jeanette McEwan and Tom, of Long Sutton, climbed aboard their bikes to support King’s Lynn-based Forward Day Centre.

The pair cycled from Hunstanton to Long Sutton and have currently raised about �200 for the charity.

Tom said: “We planned and completed the 32-mile ride, with a quick stop outside the day centre for a photo and some moral support.

“Although it was a very tough ride, we both made it eventually for this fantastic cause.”

The fundraising pair work for Home Instead Senior Care in Long Sutton, a provided of at-home care for those who need extra help to live independently.

Steve Fuller, general manager at Forward Day Centre, said: “I am thrilled that Tom and Jeanette decided to organise this event to raise funds for us - the amount they have raised is a fantastic contribution and will make a big difference to our members.”
