Neil Jackson Family Donation
Neil Jackson and his daughters – Emily Avilia, Clare Jackson, Henrietta Jackson and Harriet Jackson – have donated $10,000 to Hamilton Wheelers!!!
This magnanimous gesture honours the memory of their wife and mother – Nicol Jackson.
Nicol and Neil were and are long time Hamilton members who have supported the club for many years – the annual Neil Jackson Plumbing Volunteer of the Year Award being only one example of the support Jackson’s have given to the club.
Nicol passed away from Motor Neurone Disease some years ago and the club holds the annual Nicol Jackson Women’s Series in her honour.
With this massive donation, the donors and club wish now to leave a lasting legacy fitting of Nicol.
The $10,000 is invested and will be used yearly to support the Nicol Jackson Women’s Series as well as Junior Development. The Jackson girls were junior cyclists and Nicol was a strong women’s advocate, so it is fitting that these aspects of cycling are further promoted through the donated funds.
On behalf of all Hamilton Wheelers members, we wish to thank Neil and the girls for their generous support in loving memory of Nicol. We look forward to seeing them at our junior events and the Nicol Jackson Women’s Series next year and the many years to come.
Nicol lives strong in our collective memories.
