A funding boost
Ian Fairclough, Director of the Durrington Community Cycle Project CIC, commented: “We are incredibly grateful for this funding boost from Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, we will put it to good use in improving our workspace to provide an even better service to our lovely cycling community in Durrington.
“Things have been really difficult over the past eighteen months, with the pandemic and restrictions on movement meaning we couldn’t open the shop fully. Every little bit really does help - not only do we repair bikes, but we also provide ‘on the job’ training for our more enthusiastic volunteers from the community and local agencies (such as Social Services, NHS, homeless charities) who want to learn bicycle maintenance skills. These volunteers help to repair bicycles which are offered for sale at reasonable prices to the local community.”
