A Little Help from our Friends…

Written on: 28 Oct 2016

We talk a lot about Denmark Hill and Peckham. After all, it’s where you’ll find our digs. Now perhaps it has something to do with all these bikes, but more often than not we get the urge to get out of the front door and team up with charities further afield. Here are 6 – we’d love your suggestions for other charities to team up with.

Last summer we donated 15 bikes and ran a safety session for teens at Young Roots based near Croydon.

In January we trundled to Tooting to donate 15 bikes to CARAS, a community outreach programme, and to run a safety session for teens.

At the beginning of the year, we travelled to Coventry to pair up bikes with over 30 kids.

In May we ran a fun safety session for kids at the Children’s Society in East London and donated 20 bikes.

This half term we’ve been to the Children’s Society in East London again, with another 20 bikes and a safety session.

It’s been a busy week – we also went to Asylum Welcome in Oxford to donate 15 of our fixed-up bikes.
