1st Step Development Ventures are delighted to announce that at the Cycling Scotland annual conference they won the award for Community Champion, Everyday Cycling. Please see message below from the organisation!
We are really honoured to be recognised for our contribution to providing opportunities and confidence to people affected by addiction and poor mental health and for working to provide refurbished bikes to communities across West Lothian and Falkirk!
We would like to say a massive thank you to all the partners who organised the award and those who nominated us. It’s been a brilliant surprise to us. A lot of our volunteers when they start can be quite vulnerable and not feel very confident. So, to be recognised for their contribution to our communities is fabulous for our volunteer team and staff.
Also a massive thank you to all our local partners and funders. A special shout out to the National Lottery Communities Fund who have enabled a lot of our work to be possible.
