Re~Cycle partners with Halfords - 4th April 2013
Re~Cycle is very excited to announce an ongoing partnership with Halfords.
As there are literally millions of bikes rusting away in sheds across the UK, the logistics of getting hold of these bikes has always been an issue for us. However with Halfords' 460 stores across the UK, with each one being a potential drop off point for bikes for us in the future, the challenge is on to grow our African Partner base in a sustainable manner, without getting drowned with bikes in the mean time!
Although the details are still begin worked out, we're looking at a long term partnership and Halfords who will also be raising funds to help us grow too.
Community & CSR Manager for Halfords, Emma Thomas, comments: "we're really excited to be partnering with Re~Cycle, working with them to help collect more bikes and also raise funds, benefiting more people in Africa in the long term."
We are delighted to have Halfords' support and look forward to working with them.
This does NOT mean 'take your bike to Halfords' just yet, we're working on the best way to roll this out. More details will be announced shortly - watch this space!
