As part of Rotary’s initiative to assist guests arriving from the Ukraine to settle in and get around the local district, a request for bicycle transport was directed to Diss Waveney Rotary Club.
The need for a bicycle was for Vasylyna Beihum, a 23-year-old guest recently arrived from Ukraine. This will enable her to travel within a 5 - mile radius of Diss, using her skills as an interpreter to assist other locally settled guests from Ukraine.
International Lead, Martin Rickard, approached the well-known local Madgetts Cycles shop in Diss, to enquire if they could help source a suitable bicycle for Vasylyna.
Sean Cole of Madgetts Cycles generously donated a bicycle to Vasylyna, which he presented to her at Madgetts Cycles shop on Saturday 30th April. Much to Vasylyna’s delight the bicycle was in her favourite colour!!
