Postcode Lottery Thank You!

We would like to acknowledge the Postcode Local Trust for awarding us a generous grant of £24,992, in 2023. This funding has been instrumental in creating a sustainable, long-term inclusive cycling hub in partnership with the Evesham Velo Park, which boasts a state-of-the-art cycling track.


Through our collaboration with Goals Beyond Grass who deliver adapted cycling in Gloucestershire, we have successfully delivered inclusive cycling sessions based at the Velo Park, engaging individuals with disabilities in each session. However, to ensure the longevity of this impactful initiative, we recognised the need to evidence the demand for this provision, enabling us to gain further investment to build our own fleet of adapted bikes, with appropriate storage facilities.

This enabled us to improve the access to physical activities which are inclusive, while also building our own fleet of bikes and gaining more evidence to help us attract further grants and donations, for this project.

The project is now reaching individuals with disabilities, their families, and carers of all ages— from children to older adults—providing regular opportunities for them to be active and enjoy
the benefits of cycling. We have recently also been able to incorporate the adapted bikes in an educational programme, called the Enhanced Learning Opportunity programme, which enables us to work with local schools to educate children who learn more effectively in a practical environment, using the cycling as a catalyst.

Please visit https://pal-fitness-education.org.uk/accessible-bike-sessions/ to see our upcoming cycling sessions. We are now currently sourcing further funds and donations to continue our investment in adapted bikes. If you’d like to volunteer at these sessions, please get in touch with pal.fitness@outlook.com for more information.

Supported by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery and awarded by the Postcode Local Trust, this grant has profoundly impacted our community, promoting inclusivity and physical activity. Thank you for your incredible support!
