Re~Cycle is loading our 100th container today!
This landmark shipment, which is going to Mombasa in Kenya, will take the total number of bicycles sent in the last eleven years past 36,000.
On arrival in Africa, the bikes will be checked over by Re-Cycle’s partner before being distributed to local people to save them from having to walk long distances to access healthcare, education or employment.
Many of the bicycles will help Nurses, Midwives and other heath care workers visit more patients in villages than they could do on foot.
We're doing a collection at Abel&Cole, Wimbledon Saturday 12 February
Bring bikes to donate (with a cash donation, please). Volunteers needed, please, to help with marketing and preparing the bikes for shipping. No experience or tools needed. Contact Rita Solanke - 07783 285 343
And it looks like we're losing our storage there, so PLEASE get in touch if you know of storage in London, ideally 6-8,000 sq feet of space (560-740 sq m with 40-foot container access. Smaller and without also helpful.
