How your gift helps

A bike helps refugees and asylum-seekers access food banks, legal advice, healthcare, education and much more. If they're lucky enough to receive official refugee status, a bike can help them find employment.

Bikes are a free form of transport, a genuine life-saver for asylum-seekers who have to survive on just £36 a week.

As a bike-lover yourself, you know the joy and community that owning a bike gives you. Help give that special feeling to a refugee!

Your gift of £100 is enough to cover the full cost of providing one free bike to a refugee, including the lights, lock, high-vis and helmet that they need to cycle safely in London, plus a road cycling lesson with one of our instructors.

Gifts for Refugees
  • Right, so what is this Gifts for Refugees malarkey?
    Gifts for Refugees is our way of helping you make a charitable donation on behalf of someone else. Do I hear you yelling, 'IT'S CHRRRRRIIIIIIIISTMAS!' Yes, I think I do. Don't forget, it's also Hanukkah, Hogmanay, Human Rights Day - and probably someone's birthday soon.

    The idea is that you choose a gift that roughly corresponds to the cost of providing one of our services to refugees.

    At the moment, we have three levels:
    1. £20 for a cycling safety kit that includes a helmet, high-vis, bike lock and lights so that one of our beneficiaries can cycle safely in London.
    2. £50 for a kid's bike, plus cycling safety kit, so that a young refugee can enjoy the simple pleasure of learning to ride.
    3. £100 for a fully refurbished adult bike, plus cycling safety kit, so that a refugee or asylum seeker can access vital services around London for free.
    We'll send you a very special PDF gift card to give to your loved ones, while we take your money and use it to get more refugees cycling this holiday season!
  • What happens to the money when I buy one of your Gifts for Refugees?
    Your purchase (and any Gift Aid contribution) will be used to fund our range of charitable activities to help get refugees cycling.

    For example, if you were to give £20 for a cycling safety kit, we can use this to provide a helmet, high-vis, lights and a lock to one of our refugee beneficiaries.

    Sometimes it's not bike lights that our beneficiaries need, but a cycling lesson, or a new set of tyres. So, in order to continue to provide our full range of services, please be aware that some of your donation could be used for a different item or service.

    Whatever happens, we promise that the full value of your gift will always be used to get refugees cycling!
  • I get that this is a donation, but can you send me something that I can actually give to my friends/family/colleagues?
    Absolutely! After you make your purchase, you'll be sent an email containing a very special link to a very special PDF that you can download and print at home.

    This PDF boasts a photo of your chosen Gift, along with a special thank-you message from The Bike Project. Cheers!
  • Can I claim Gift Aid?
    If you're a UK taxpayer, then yes - and please do! It means The Bike Project can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you donate, at no additional cost to you.

    Simply click the tick box on the product page (above the 'Add to Cart' button) to show that you have read the following Gift Aid declaration:

    I am a UK taxpayer and understand that if I pay less Income Tax and / or Capital Gains Tax in the current tax year than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

    We'll do the rest!
