Our Cookery Rep Rebecca completes a 50km cycle challenge

Rebecca has had a really tough year. Rebecca is 19 with Autism. When lockdown hit us in March 2020, Rebecca’s life went on hold. She could no longer access any clubs as she was faced with the only option of joining online. Rebecca was fearful of doing online activities because the thought of speaking with people via video was too overwhelming.

So she became isolated. In December 2020, after staff at Creating Adventures kept all forms of communication open with Sarah, Rebecca’s mum and Rebecca herself, she decided to join the Creating Adventures Christmas Party as a spectator.

She LOVED it! Rebecca then joined the Zumba, the Friday Live social and our Recipe for Success cookery classes. She had progressed so much that we decided we would make Rebecca our official Cookery Rep!

After 5 years of not being on her bike, Rebecca decided that she wanted to ride her bike again to raise funds for Creating Adventures and set herself a challenge of 50km.

On Friday 4th June Rebecca invited Jenny Allcock to complete the final stretch of her 50km bike ride.

‘It was an absolute pleasure to complete the last stretch of her bike challenge with her. Seeing our members reach their goals and seeing them achieve makes me smile so much.’ said Jenny.


Rebecca’s mum Sarah is so proud of everything she has achieved. Sarah organised for neighbours to be outside when Rebecca arrived home after completing her challenge. Rebecca was therefore greeted by applause and an array of balloons to celebrate her magnificent achievement.
