As most of you are aware unfortunately one of our Crew members’ bike was stolen a few weeks back and in our mindful Monday session as a Crew it was decided that a fundraising page was a way of helping the community, very close to home by raising money for a new bike. We were blown away by the generosity of so many people and quickly reached the target.
With bikes being a sort after item at the minute, sourcing one, in stock locally could have proved a challenge, but an amazing local company Cycle Supreme stepped in to help us out.
So with everyone’s hard work and kindness, Crew were able to surprise Logan with a new bike last friday in front of his family. We also raised enough money to purchase a diamond standard lock, to hopefully prevent such an awful event happening again.
In true Crew spirit, we tackled the issue of how best to use the new bike lock. This took a few attempts and many different ideas but they pulled together and Logan’s new bike was safely locked up.
Crew were asked how it made them feel to do something good or a good deed for someone else and some of the responses were:-
‘It makes me feel good as I feel like I’m making a difference even if its small’
‘I feel happy’
‘A sense of pride’
‘I’m just glad I can help someone else and make their day better’
There was a real excitement and buzz in Crew and the afternoon really highlighted the bonds and togetherness within Crew Rowling.
Above all, compassion!
