Wheels for All Kingston receive new Tomcat trikes!

Some amazing news from our Kingston Hub this week as we were able to take possession of two new Tomcat trikes, a Dragon and a Dragonfly, which were bought, in part, through the fundraising efforts of one of our regular attendees, Jessica!

Jessica, who has been coming to the Kingston Hub since 2021, first thought of the idea to fundraise earlier this year and decided the best way to do this would be to cycle the 800m track a whopping 15 times!
“Jess loves coming to the sessions here at Wheels for All. She usually comes and does around 3-4 loops at a steady pace so when she said she wanted to fundraise and do 15 we knew she was doing it out of sheer determination and love for the charity and what it is able to give her and others like her” her mum told us.

And it seems that this success has only spurred Jessica on to raise money for more local causes! “After her work here at Wheels for All, Jessica has decided she wants to raise money for her local leisure centre by swimming lengths. Wheels for All has been such a benefit to her as it allows her to get more active to be able to take on the challenges she wants to do in the future, it’s by far one of the best things available to her” Jessica’s dad told us.

The handover day was a lovely event and was attended by a whole host of people from the local community, despite a rather wet start! We were lucky enough to be in the company of the Kingston Wheelers, a local cycling club who aim to make cycling as inclusive as possible by supporting grassroots initiatives in the London area. KWCC also helped in the fundraising and some of their members volunteer at the Kingston Hub too! We were also joined by some of our regular session attendees from HfT, who came down to support us at Kingston Athletic Track and were even able to try out the new trikes afterwards!

We’re so grateful to all the fundraising that our wonderful participants do for us as this helps to secure the future of Wheels for All Kingston and deliver inclusive cycling to those who need us most, a sentiment echoed by Martel Atterbury, Physical Activity and Sports Development Officer for Kingston Council “Its great to have Wheels for All in Kingston and it was lovely to be invited down today for the handover of these much-needed adapted cycles which we hope will mean more people in Kingston are able to stay fit and active. Hopefully, this is just the beginning for such a wonderful charity”.

A huge thank you to everyone involved in the day and to both Jessica and Kingston Wheelers CC again for the amazing fundraising effort for Wheels for All Kingston. The Tomcat trikes are now ready to take to the track for all of our attendees to enjoy and we’re so grateful to have them as part of our fleet.
