My name is Lisa, I am Scottish, and I am the project coordinator for the Low Carbon Community project at Empower Women for change. I started work in June 2020 and even with the horrible restrictions of Covid have really enjoyed my time getting to meet lots of amazing women. 

The Swap shop has proved a great success with many people able to donate and collect clothes saving them from going to landfill. This has luckily been able to run throughout even with the Covid restrictions as it runs along with the food bank. 

However, my favorite part of working with EWfC was when we were able to have bike lessons, this was amazing fun and a great opportunity to get to know our service users.  It made me so happy to see so many happy women enjoying the great outdoors.  Seeing women who had never been on bikes before then being able to cycle is truly inspiring. It is so true when they say that smiles are infectious!
