Here’s what Souta Van Wick, the Operations Manager of Bacup Consortium Trust, has recently had to say:
“Go Velo is an exemplary organisation who have worked in partnership with Stubbylee Community Greenhouses to deliver a project funded by the East Lancs Clinical Commissioning Groups: Social Prescribing Fund. This funding has enabled our organisation to develop a highly successful bicycle upcycle project which has up skilled participants of the local community who face barriers to employment and well being due to their health, financial or familial circumstances.
The instructors who have consistently worked with us have proved themselves to be committed, highly professional and passionate about the work they do. Their work and consistent positive attitude, has enabled individuals who are socially isolated/mentally unwell/vulnerable/ unemployed or struggling financially to have access to sustainable transport, improve maintenance skills and regain confidence to become cyclists. Some have found work and many have improved access to many places and social groups they would otherwise not experienced.
Go Velo as an organisation have delivered sessions and organised programs to fit with our needs as an organisation and have certainly met the needs of the community we deliver our projects to.”
And this from Jane Grady, Hyndburn Dog Warden:
“I would just like to say that I love my new Claud Butler Urban Hybrid bicycle. I haven’t rode a bike for a while but I soon felt confident and able to handle the cycle well. James is an excellent instructor with years of experience I have learnt quite a lot from him today and it’s been an enjoyable day. I have probably been riding my own bikes set up wrong for my height and leg length for years .I feel a lot more confident now when venturing out on my bike patrols. James also catered for the type of cycling I would be doing in relation to my job. He split the day up we did a couple of hours road work and some bicycle maintenance. Then we went cycling along the canal toe paths I found this quite challenging at first until I got used to the different surfaces. James made me aware of some hazards that I wouldn’t have normally picked up on. We also did some cycling around some public parks were there are quite a few different hazards like loose dogs and children playing.I would recommend your company to friends and family excellent service and friendly instructor.”
