International Volunteer Day

Celebrating our brilliant volunteers December 5th each year recognises volunteers around the world, this year has certainly seen our Freewheelers volunteers commitment, compassion and willingness to do whatever they can to help our charity through all that Covid has thrown at it and still deliver our service and much more to the communities we serve around Bristol, Bath and Taunton. An extra shout out as well to all our supporters who volunteer by doing collections in their shops or member groups they are part of, plus the children who have taken time to draw pictures of our bikes and rainbows, or our local poet Cathy all of whom keep us smiling throughout the year.
