Streetbikes won for transforming people’s lives ... especially those with disabilities.
Since it was set up five years ago it has provided 5,000 free bikes to people who could not have afforded one.
The judges described it as “a truly innovative project that’s making such a difference to the lives of people within 48 communities across Kirklees.”
Set up by Gill Greaves, from Brockholes, Streetbikes collects donated bikes, ensures they are roadworthy and donates them to people who otherwise would struggle to afford one, including single people, families, disabled people and the elderly.
She said: “It’s a fantastic achievement for us.
“It’s great recognition of the hard work that’s been put in by our staff and volunteers, who altogether have helped to change people’s lives.
“Even people who have severe head injuries have learnt that they can still ride a bike, which gives them the confidence to help them move on with their lives.”
