Helen Scott MBE gets an Asgard Police approved bike shed
Recently Andrew Heath, Brook Chalmers and Stuart Leddy from Asgard Storage had the pleasure of delivering and building one of our sheds to Helen Scott MBE. We now have yet another Asgard owning GB Gold medal-winning cyclist!
Scottie kindly supplied coffee and biscuits whilst the team got to work building the shed that will protect her bikes. Living 9 miles from the Manchester Velodrome where she trains, Helen told us she cycles to and from her training sessions and needed a safe, convenient place to store her bikes. We even got to look at her medals, which made our day.
Helen had also kindly arranged for her teammates to sign a number of plaques, which will be used in conjunction with our charitable work with Kirkwood Hospice. The Hospice provides specialist care and support for the terminally ill. Signatures include Paralympic medallist Sophie Thornhill and GB Paracycling Strength and Conditioning Coach, Katy Marchant. Altogether we have over a couple of dozen cycling team autographs, with Elinor Barker getting her teammates to contribute to the signing of the plaques as well.
During Clerkenwell Design Week, Asgard’s parent company Flexiform Business Furniture will be having a charity raffle in their London furniture showroom and the signed plaques will be bolted to the side of an Asgard shed, which is up for grabs in the raffle. If you want to know more about the raffle or make a donation to Kirkwood Hospice take a look at our Just Giving page.
Update: In 2022, we caught up with Helen to see how she's getting on with her 3x bike shed: “Thanks so much for your message. The shed is just as great as it was 5 years ago when it was installed into my garden! I love it.” – Helen Scott
With a 10 year warranty, we were confident Helen's shed would be looking just as good as day 1 - offering secure and dry storage for her bikes. To see more athletes who own an Asgard shed, click here.
