Year End UpdateThe majority of targets were exceeded for 2011/12. Working with 2 Shires Credit Union has helped beneficiaries to save and purchase their bikes at the end of the loan period, and a new arrangement with Groundwork has resulted in Ways to Work being able to purchase reconditioned bikes for a fraction of the cost. Rural Action Derbyshire has also been successful in securing funding from Derbyshire County Council, Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Bolsover District Council to enable Ways to Work to continue into 2012/13.
