Campaigner Awards 2015
We're very excited to announce the details of our 2015 Campaigner Awards, returning again this year to celebrate the achievements and activities of our wonderful local groups, members and activists over the past year.
We have four main Award Categories to reflect the range of fantastic work our Local Groups, members and activists do:
- Best Ride Leader
- Best Local Group Ride or Event
- Best Local Group Campaign or Initiative
