I would like to say a huge thank you for all your support in 2017!
This year we shipped nearly 8,800 quality used bikes to five of our African charity partners. In Ghana, I witnessed first-hand the instant empowerment felt by women accessing Re~Cycle bikes and a day’s professional maintenance training through our partner the Village Bike Project.
Our sincere thanks also goes to our wonderful UK corporate partner - Halfords, along with Kingston-Smith and The Armed Forces Covenant for the prestigious awards we've won this year (and the fantastic animations).
Finally thank you to our team of dedicated volunteers, without your sustained efforts none of our great work in 2017 could have been achieved.
We hope you enjoyed our Re~Cycle Christmas ballad, please share it widely!
In 2018 we have some exciting events planned - including our 20th Anniversary in July and new programming with African partners.
But we will need your ongoing support, especially to broaden and diversify our UK supply of bikes and funding our ongoing operations.

I'm Vince Langdon-Morris, the new Managing Director at Re~Cycle.
I've just completed my first trip to Africa with Re~Cycle to see some of the amazing work we do in Ghana. I feel privileged and incredibly excited to be taking up the role of Managing Director. I have spent many years living in Sub-Saharan African Countries, and I've seen first hand what impact a single bike can make for a family living there!
With your help, Re~Cycle sent over 8,000 bikes to Africa this year! Thank you very much for all your support in 2017.
In 2018 we are hoping to keep in touch with you more often - to tell you about all the exciting things that we are planning. To subscribe to our emails, click here.

Also, we're in the Christmas spirit and we've created a Christmas jingle to go with our Re~Cycle Christmas tree made from bike frames (which made the paper) and it's almost ready!
