Morrison's Foundation

£8,940 was awarded by the Morrisions Foundation for the 'Let's Go Ride a Bike' Inclusive Cycling Project.

The project encouraged and supported more disabled people and people with limiting illnesses to be able to enjoy the benefits of cycling, both now and into the future. The project's activities addressed this in two ways. The first element was to train a group of volunteers to support six inclusive cycling hubs in Derby and Derbyshire. The project also provided cycling experience training to people (from 11 to 17 years of age in Derbyshire and 11 plus in Derby City) with disabilities or limiting illnesses to help them become more competent using the bikes on quiet roads.

Sport England - Small Grant

£9,900 was awarded by Sport England through the Small Grants programme for the Trust's 'This Girl Can Coach' programme.

The ultimate aim of this project is to provide at least 15 women with the skills, support and opportunities to deliver new or additional sporting sessions. A key condition of the project is for the women to deliver (and report back on) at least 30 hours of new or additional activity for people aged 14+. The aim of this is to provide them with the opportunity to gain a good grounding in what they have learnt, increasing their chances of continuing their involvement after the project has finished, and also increasing the chances of the new activities being continued.
