Kingdom Off Road Motorcycle Club was set up in response to a tide of antisocial and criminal behaviour by young motorbike riders in Fife. David Paton, the club programme coordinator, and his team have set out to change the negative perception of motorcyclists within their local communities.
Instead of causing problems in public spaces, youngsters can now take up the pursuit in a safe and controlled environment through a structured programme.
At the end of 2017 the Club was recognised for its outstanding work in community sport by being named as Local Club of the Year at the Sunday Mail’s Scottish Sports Awards. Now they are finalists in the Lottery Awards!
The National Lottery Awards are the annual search to find the UK’s favourite Lottery-funded projects. Now in their 15th year, the Awards recognise the incredible difference that Lottery-funded projects have made to people, places and communities all across the UK through the 535,000 grants awarded since 1994.
You can vote for your favourite projects in the National Lottery Awards. The winning project will receive £5,000 and appear on a BBC One awards show!
