October – Volunteer In Focus

Congratulations to Alan Kingshott who is our October Volunteer In Focus Winner. With 19 separate nominations, it’s clear Alan has made an impact!

Alan coaches at Solent Pirates and coaches the young group at the cycling club. He ensures new riders become enthused about cycling and “coaches every week without failure”, says many nominations. Many children are disappointed when they have to move on from Alan’s sessions but not before Alan has ensured the children are enjoying riding bikes and have the confidence to progress through the sport. When Alan is not coaching, he can be seen at races encouraging riders, and even maintaining the clubs bikes!

He certainly enhanced my own children’s love of cycling and sense of belonging with a big focus on fun” (Solent Pirates’ Parent).
