Doncaster Wheeler’s Cycling Club which has helped to teach bike skills to children as young as five, is the lucky winner of £500 courtesy of Miller Homes Yorkshire.

The competition, held annually by Miller Homes, is designed to offer a helping hand to local sports clubs.

“We are thrilled to have received this prize and the entire club passes on our thanks to Miller Homes and the Doncaster Knights for choosing us,” said Martin. “This prize money will allow us to train volunteers to become Level 2 coaches and also access essential first aid training. We’ll be able to make a real difference to our junior section and attract more members encouraging young people to discover the joys of cycling.”

“Doncaster Wheeler’s are worthy winners of this year’s competition,” said Steve McElroy. “It is pleasing to see that they are passing on their love and knowledge of this popular sport to future generations and we commend them for their efforts and enthusiasm.

“Once again, the calibre of the applications from the region’s sports clubs was extremely high and demonstrated the variety and commitment of sporting clubs for all ages and abilities.”
