Awards Evening: winner of Contribution Award 2011

Back in December, Cycling Projects hosted their third annual Volunteer Awards Evening. The evening was a great success and staff, volunteers and partners thoroughly enjoyed the night. Over the next coming weeks we will be doing a feature on the winners of all six awards presented.

This week we are looking at Cycling Projects Contribution Award, which was won by Jean Woods from Hyndburn Wheels for All centre.

Jean has been giving her time to our Wheels for All (disability cycling) centre in Hyndburn for the last three years. Being a very dedicated member of the team, participants love her with many whom insisting they must ride with Jean on the tandem before they go home!

Twice a week she also travels to a neighboring borough to transport Wheels for All participants to their session in Hyndburn, if that wasn’t enough she is also the soup chef for the centre. This is essential in the cold winter months!!

AND this is all done with a big smile and without asking for anything back in return.
