Terry Hutchinson on a motorbike at 'Tommy' at Seaham

Thank you to Beth Bengochea who got in touch to tell us about her Grandma and Grandad Nora and Terry Hutchinson - and a kind gesture that helped fulfil a long held wish....

82 year old Terry is unable to walk or sit up unaided, but yesterday he was was lifted onto a motorbike by a voluntary group of North East bikers lead by 'Dale the Builder'.

He was driven to Seaham to see 'Tommy' the statue of a World War Two soldier on the sea front.
