An LCC member at the Metropolitan Police has recruited more new members than any other as part of our Double Our Voice campaign.
Carole Fell-Smith, who works at the Police Forensic Unit in Walworth, said: “When I heard about LCC, I joined up straight away, and managed to persuade a few of my colleagues to do the same."
"We were attracted by for the added benefits such as free third party insurance and discounts* at many bike shops throughout London.
“Joining LCC feels as if I'm becoming part of an ever-growing cycling community within London.”
“LCC staff have been very supportive in my efforts to set up a workplace bicycle users group [BUG], sending me copies of the latest magazine, recruitment leaflets, and cycling maps of London.”
LCC’s membership officer Matthew Dunton said: “We have nothing but praise for Carole for putting so much effort into our Double Our Voice campaign.
"We’ve already had 10 new members from the Met since she started promoting LCC at her workplace.
"If we could all recruit that many new members, LCC would have be 100,000 strong by this time next year.
If anyone else needs help setting up a BUG, or recruiting members, they should get in touch with our membership team on 020 7234 9310.
