Britt receives her award from Rhona and Keith

Britt Sutcliffe - a prent helper at Tarbolton Primary - was the proud recipient of the Volunteer of the Year Award at the annual Bikeability Scotland Awards.

The award was presented by BBC Scotland sport presenter Rhona McLeod at a ceremony in the grand surroundings of Edinburgh's City Chambers.

Keith Irving, Cycling Scotland chief executive said: "Cycling Scotland's ambition is for every child to have the opportunity to learn to cycle safely and confidently on-road. This is an essential life skill and we rely greatly on the support we receive from our local authority partners. Britt has been an inspiration in South Ayrshire, not only to the young people she has trained, but to the wider cycling community."

Britt, who has delivered Bikeability Scotland cycle training to 80 pupils at Tarbolton Primary and Nursery School, was chosen for this award for the outstanding commitment, energy and enthusiasm she has shown for Bikeability and its implementation at the school.

Bikeability Scotland cycle training is designed to give children the skills and confidence they need both to cycle safely on the roads, and to encourage them to carry on cycling into adulthood. Find out more at www.bikeabilityscotland.org.
