One of our fantastic bike participants put Common Wheel forward for a BBC Radio 4 'All in the Mind' award and we were shortlisted as one of three UK based organisations to win the 'Project Award'. Claudia Hammond visited the project to record interviews for her programme on 27 April 2016 and the BBC invited our representatives to the award ceremony in London where we were to find out who had won. Common Wheel were the overall winners! The award ceremony was broadcast on 28 June.
Recognition! In October 2015, Common Wheel won the Evening Times Glasgow Community Champion Award (North-West Sector) in the 'Health and Wellbeing' category - full report in the Evening Times.
The finalists from all over the city were invited to an event at the City Chambers on 3 December, when Common Wheel was declared the overall winner in the category.
As Emma put it: "People don't join the voluntary sector to make lots of money - they do it because they love it and because they can make a difference. The thanks they get come from nights like this." (Evening Times report).
