Thanks to the Vodaphone Foundation, through the World of Difference programme, we are able to have a full time addition to our team for the next few months.
Laura Mumford was awarded one of 500 World of Difference places which help people to work for a charity of their choice for 2 months full time. Laura will be working on the possibility of tracking our bicycles to establish a greater understanding of their benefits to the recipients in our partner projects and also assisting with the London Reuse Network London hub proposals. You can find out more about her time with Re~Cycle here:
Thanks again to our See The Difference friends who launched a campaign "Send a bike to Namibia" with the help of the wonderful folks here. Together they raised £2,800 to send a container of bikes to Namibia.
The project is now closed and Re~Cycle is 3/4 of the way to filling the container.
We aim to ship the bikes in 2 weeks and will get footage of the loading as well as recipients getting the bikes - watch this space!
Nicola, Lisa, Dom, thank you so much for running the project, donors we are very grateful for your donations and promise to keep you updated on the progress!
