The Sustainable Travel Collective – which is the charity that runs the Big Wheel and RideWise projects – is very excited to be a part of the voting process for the 2017 Aviva Community Fund.
The fund provides opportunities for organisations to try to secure money for projects that they feel would make a difference to communities. We are delighted to be able to confirm that our project concept for a pop up community cycle centre in Stapleford has made it through the first round of judging and is now in a public voting competition.
And, simply put, we need YOUR vote to help us to secure these funds.
Our charity has lots of experience of helping people through greener and more sustainable transport and we think that our Bikes 4 Life concept of providing a pop up community cycle centre in Stapleford, Nottingham, will make a huge difference to the communities that we will work with. It’ll mean that young unemployed people will learn valuable lifeskills. The skills that will be given through our cycle centre means they will have better access to training and employment and will be able to get around without reliance on other forms of transport. You can read all about it here.
It takes 2 minutes to vote and to share with your coworkers or colleagues who may share your interest in the massive benefits that cycling can have on individuals, communities, congestion and the environment.
We’re really excited about this opportunity. Voting closes on the 18th November, so click now and make your vote count.
