Re-Cycle UK to the rescue
On 14th June 2021 we received our 1st container load of used bicycles from Re-Cycle UK! We couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you Re-Cycle and Halfords.
Since 2013 Re~Cycle has partnered with Halfords in the UK to collect and donate used bicycles to rural African communities. Millions of bicycles across the UK lie unused in sheds and often end up in landfill. However, these bikes can provide a much-needed lifeline to people in remote parts of Africa to travel to work, school and much more.
More than 60 000 bicycles have been collected and donated across the country.
The bikes sent to Africa provide an environmentally friendly and sustainable means of transport for communities to enable people to work, receive an education, transport food & medicine & learn new skills.
