For its outstanding work throughout the years the Flying Ace Cycle Club (FACC) of New Amsterdam has been constantly been rewarded by former members both at home and overseas. The club has also been benefitting from members of the business community and the wide community at large.
Recently former member and national cyclist, overseas based Franco Crawford, presented two bicycles to members of the club. The beneficiaries were 67 years old Daniel Rigby and Coach and Founder Randolph Roberts.
Crawford, who resides in England and still rides occasionally in his adopted home land and in North America, is still a member of the (FACC).
Crawford who has been coming home on a regular basis always remembers his former club as he doles out numerous gifts and other forms of assistance to the members and others in the community. Back home on holiday he continues to remember the club in his continued benevolent drive.
Crawford, who is now a community activist and is also spreading the word of GOD, does not only assist cycling, but gives to other sports and community activities as well.
According to Crawford, he has seen the elder Rigby ride on a few occasion on an old bicycle fitted with fenders, basket and all and still performs well. He said that for Rigby age he has good potential and he wanted to give him a chance to make full use of his ability. He also assisted Roberts who he said has been working tirelessly over the years to assist the youth and keep cycling going in Berbice.
Rigby, who is the oldest member of the club and a former Prison Officer, was loud in praise and express heartfelt appreciation to Crawford for the gift and promised to do his best and make full use of the cycle presented to him.
Roberts, who was instrumental in the donation becoming a reality, thanked Crawford for being an example to others and for always remember his club and countrymen.
Roberts also thanked Crawford for always remembering the club. “Thank You Franco for always remembering us. You and a few others are an example of what others should be.” He used the opportunity to call on other past members, overseas based Guyanese and businessman and more so the Government to take a page out of Crawford’s book and come forward and assist the youths so that they could be kept away from the ills of the society and illicit activities.
