As a charity, donations are vitally important to us and they come in various forms, this does not always have to be cash (although we find that very helpful when paying bills!), donations of any kind are always immensely important and do make a real difference. Even if you think it’s just a small thing, to a social enterprise it can mean the world and certainly does for our clients

Some suggestions of what you can donate and how you can help us

Cash donations, every penny helps – Please see use the donation button at the bottom of this page or on the home page, or alternatively call into the shop

Bicycles that you no longer need, any condition whatsoever. Something you may consider a wreck may actually be a diamond in the rough, or if it is beyond repair then we can harvest it for parts and breathe life into any number of upcycled bikes

Bicycle parts that you may have lying around in your shed etc. Like we say, any condition and anything can and will help

Tools that you no longer use, it could be useless to you but could help us to continue our work

Stationary that you may have left over from your working life, paper, pads, pens, etc

Your TIME – one of the biggest ways you can help make a difference is to donate some of your free time. If you have any skills in bicycle maintenance or retail, then we would value your help and support so much. We also value other skills such as fundraising, marketing etc.

For all of the above please contact us on our landline 01325 788857 or by email  to learn more or to arrange dropping off any items etc.
