Free cycling sessions in Bradford

Free cycling sessions for adults from Bradford District who care for relatives or friends are taking place in Lister Park from August 6.

Bikes, helmets and all equipment will be provided free of charge and the sessions are suitable for all skill levels, including beginners and riders who are not very confident.

Carers’ Resource has teamed up with qualified cycling tutors, who will lead the groups and get everyone cycling safely.

Jenny Sengel, Groups Team Leader at Carers’ Resource, said: “These sessions are ideal for carers who want to get out and about and active after lockdown.

“Whether you’re a complete beginner, a bit out of practice or a keen cyclist, come along and enjoy the fresh air, improve your skills and meet other carers.”

The sessions will run every Friday from August 6, in Lister Park, Bradford. Covid safety guidelines will be followed.

Booking is essential – for more information about timings and where to meet, and to book a place, please contact Mel or Kauser at Carers’ Resource on 01274 449 660 or email groupworkers@carersresource.org

Carers’ Resource’s Freephone Carer Advice Line is open 10am-4pm, Monday to Friday, on 0808 50 15 939. For more information on Carers’ Resource go to www.carersresource.org

The Difference We Make 2020-2021

We decided to do something a little different for our “impact report” this year and produced an animated slideshow video. It’s embedded below, or watch it on YouTube – and subscribe to our channel!

As you can imagine, it wasn’t a typical year!

A downloadable PDF version will follow soon, as will a print version and a version with audio description.

The video was produced in-house by Gavin Massingham, our Technology Development Officer, with help from Hannah Crabtree.
