Bicycle Superstore helps Bicycles For Humanity
Got an old much loved tredly that is not getting ridden much any more? Or are you looking to treat yourself and upgrade and don't know what to do with your old bike? Why not give it a new home in Africa!
Bicycle Superstore want to make it easier for riders to donate old much loved steeds to a new life in Africa. It is now easier than ever to donate a bike* to Bicycles for Humanity, simply drop it in to any Bicycle Superstore and they will give it a once over and pass it on to the charity.
Over 400 bikes were sent last year, which was the first container load of bikes shipped to Africa.
A second container load is being prepared now for shipping to Zambia in April.
Nigel Letty, the Managing Director of Bicycle Superstore told us;
“Every year, millions of bicycles are discarded as people upgrade to newer models. These discarded bikes have the potential to change lives. This is what Bicycles for Humanity does, it changes lives. Bicycle Superstore is proud to partner such a movement and encourage bike lovers to donate their old bikes at any of our stores.”
*well loved bikes are great but please ensure that the bike is in good repair, a pile of rust is better off in the hard rubbish.
