We are really proud of Sam Downing who was recently nominated volunteer of the month.

Sam originally joined our cycling schemes on Mondays to further develop his cycling skills. It quickly became apparent that Sam could do more than just ride a bike as he was engaging and helpful to other members of the group.

As a result of this willingness we worked with Sam to help him to become a volunteer and since then he has never looked back. Sam is a valid member of the team volunteering on the weekly Sunday rides he helps other less able riders by leading by example as well as pushing and developing the stronger riders to challenge themselves.

Sam has helped us with raising funds for the YMCA and is a great ambassador for the YMCA and the benefits of cycling. Well done Sam on your nomination!
