The Bhayana Family Foundation Awards recognize the dedication, commitment and skills of staff at United Way member agencies. For the second time, CultureLink has been honoured with an award!
In 2009, CultureLink’s Ajith Aluthwatta won in the “Innovation” category, for forging a partnership between CultureLink and the Toronto Cyclists Union to promote cycling to newcomers. In 2011, the winner in the “Community Partnership” category was the Davenport West Bike Project, in which CultureLink also plays a role.
All the partners – Davenport-Perth Neighbourhood and Community Health Centre, The Stop Community Food Centre, Sweet Pete’s Bike Shop, My First Wheels, Bike Pirates and CultureLink – received plaques at the ceremony held on December 8 at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Hundreds of people were there to witness our achievement as a partnership. Thanks to the nominators and the selection panel members, for seeing the multiple benefits of cycling!
