National Volunteers’ Week took place from Tuesday 1st – Monday 7th June 2021 – an annual campaign organised to recognise the contribution that millions of people make across the UK through volunteering. Huw, who is supported by Potens in Parc Morfa, has been benefitting from a group of volunteers who run a disability cycling club in Conwy.
The Conwy Freewheelers Adapted Cycling Club, based in Colwyn Bay, is the only adapted cycling club aimed at giving disabled people the opportunity to ride and learn to ride that is run solely by volunteers.
Huw loves attending his weekly sessions now the COVID restrictions have been lifted.
The inclusive club, formed from a partnership between Disability Sport Wales, Conwy’s Leisure Development Team and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, offers cycling opportunities for people of all abilities, particularly those with learning, sensory and physical impairments. This organisation relies on the group of 10 volunteers that offer up both their time and knowledge to help support the members.
