Points of Light Award for OV

Congratulations to OV Alex Reeves (K 80-90) who recently won a Points of Light award for his charity, Charlottes’ Tandems. Every week day, the Prime Minister recognises an inspirational volunteer with the Daily Point of Light award. Charlotte’s Tandems was set up by Alex and his wife Kate inspired by the benefits cycling brought to their daughter Charlotte.

The charity lends out free tandems to enable people with disabilities or additional needs to enjoy the wonders of cycling and ride wherever, whenever and with whomever they like. Tandems are lent out for at least a couple of months at a time all over the UK and Ireland and there are about 140 tandems in their fleet. Well done Alex and Kate.
