Cycle Winchester has recently prepared its first status report. We felt it was about time after three years of quiet but determined action! We are sharing this report with our supporters today via website and social media, to provide an insight into what we have done, and some of the initiatives we plan for the future.
Cycle Winchester (CW) was formed in November 2017 with funding from WinACC, City of Winchester Trust, Bespoke Biking, Winchester CTC (the local group of Cycling UK) and Friends of the Earth. Each organisation donated £50, for which we are very grateful. We have supplemented that initial funding over the years with donations from our supporters and volunteers, including the collection buckets at Mass Rides. Part of the reason for producing the status report was to show our supporters how their donations have been put to good use. We are pleased to say that the majority of our initial funders have recently supported a second funding round of similar size. We now have a little over £200 in the bank! This will support planned activities, but needless to say, we continue to welcome donations via the ‘donate’ link on our website.
