RaffleWinnerWe are delighted to announce that Ben Harris won the youth bike in our recent De’ils On Wheels bike raffle. We also threw in a goodie bag with lights, a lock and some hi-viz snapbands!

Ben is a regular at the DRC Youth Project and having a bike means Ben will be able to cycle to and from the Youth Project held at Heart of Scotstoun community centre. Ben was one of seven Youth Project members who recently took part in a fundraising initiative where the boys ran 5km and raised £150 for the centre.

Thanks to everyone who supported our bike workshop by buying raffle tickets in the run-up to Christmas. A huge thanks to The Bike Chain for their generosity in donating this brand new bike.
