The CCCT have been successful with a funding application from Award for All (Big Lottery Fund).
This has enabled us to purchase 3 blender bikes and trailer. The blender bikes are exercise bikes with a blender attached, so as you pedal, you blend what ever ingredients to consume via a smoothie.
These are to be taken around Calderdale to introduce and educate the local community about healthy lifestyle.
The bikes will be available to schools, community groups and businesses to hire.
The CCCT will also be showcasing the bikes at various galas and events in and around Calderdale through 2015.

The CCCT are a small charity who depend on sales, grants and donations to continue our good work. Thanks to some recent donations, we are able to plan for the new year with great optimism for our current projects.
The first of these was from the Rank Foundation who are kindly giving us money towards a new trailer. This has been added to the grant we received earlier this year from Community Foundation for Calderdale for the same resource. We are planning on expanding our wheelchair sessions across Calderdale and this trailer is essential.
The Halifax RLFC Independent Supporters Trust (HIST) have kindly donated money to the CCCT, as a thank you for Big Frank attending their October meeting. We are hoping to do more work together in the community where and when it is possible.
Finally, CCCT Chairman and Halifax RLFC Director Michael Steele and his wife Glenda recently celebrated their wedding anniversary. As a kind gesture, they had guests donate money to the CCCT to go towards projects for local children.
