KORMC recently won an Award the Scottish Sports Awards for best local club of the year. We are looking to build upon this success continuing with our current referral programme. As well as this we are creating an open membership for all off-road motorcycle enthusiasts and developing a wheelchair accessible motorcycle with off-road capabilities. We are in early stages of talks with Fife Council’s Employability Service, to set up Foundations Apprenticeships focusing on basic motorcycle maintenance.
KORMC are also launching a new off-road motorcycle coaching programme. We are working with Active Schools and focusing on Kirkcaldy in the early part of this year. We want to get children and young people engaged, off their bums and active. Despite what many people think, off-road motorcycling requires a high level of fitness.
Oh, our Administrator won an award at the Fife Business diversity Awards at the end of 2017 too. We were finalists in Kingdom FM’s, Hero Awards, narrowly missing out on a win.
We are determined to continue and improve the good work we do in our community, we are looking to increase and evidence the social impact we have. BRAG, Fife Council and local businesses Dial-a-tow and East Neuk Trials Motorcycles have really helped. In addition to this, funding support from The Young Start Fund, Tesco’s Bags of help, Santander Community Fund, LCPB, Aldi’s Sports Fund and Cash for Kids have made it a great year for us.
As KORMC continues to grow and develop we are looking to recruit 2 new volunteers on to our Management Board.
