Our wonderful bike scheme coordinator, Vicky Woodcraft, is stepping down after helping to provide over 100 donated bikes to refugee families in the past two years.
Would you consider taking over her volunteer role as Herts Welcomes Refugees’ bicycle scheme coordinator? It’s a very rewarding job which involves helping to source bikes, getting them checked and repaired, and arranging delivery to local refugee families. Most of the families now have bikes so the job should not be too demanding.
The donated bicycles can make a huge difference to refugee families, particularly if they don’t have a driving license. The bikes enable children to get to school and adults to attend college or pick up shopping. They also offer much needed fun and exercise.
The ideal candidate will:
*have storage space to hold up to 10 bikes at a time
*live close to a helpful bike repair shop or cycle hub (the one Vicky used has just relocated to Stevenage)
Bike maintenance skills are helpful although not essential.
