Hello I am Amy,
Thank you for visiting my page. I have been a committed supporter of Bike Tours for the Wounded for many years, following my Dad’s (Darren) desire to give something really special back to those who have fought for our country.
I am employed by Blue Cucumber Tours and my primary role is to assist riders through the registration in becoming one of our many experienced riders. Without the kindness of these riders we would not be able to continue offering our once in a life time trips. I am often described as ‘the voice on the end of the phone’ as you will often find I am the one who you will hear from the most. I make it a priority that within my role I offer the best customer service possible and allow for the process before and after tour to be as smooth as possible.
One of my favourite parts of my role is working closely with the servicemen and servicewomen we support, assisting in their personal journey before joining us on tour. I have had the privilege of taking part on tour in America and can honestly say they were some of the best weeks of my life. It is quite amazing to witness the transformation from the first phone I receive to the person that walks off the plane after spending 10 days on tour.
When I am not in the office I work as a qualified therapist supporting adults with mental and physical disabilities. I find my knowledge and understanding of many of the individuals we support assists greatly in offering continued support prior, during and after taking part in one of our tours.
Having been with the company for nearly two years it has become increasingly evident in my opinion how beneficial these tours can be. Part of my job is to arrange reunions and keep everyone in touch and through this I have witnessed many new friendships and support networks being formed. I have personally made many lifelong friends, and love to see people continue to grow in confidence. I thoroughly enjoy working for such a worthy cause and I look forward to seeing the organisation grow. If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to get in touch.
