It isn't always possible to match donated bikes to the resettled refugees waiting for them, and one twelve-year-old girl had been waiting for a bicycle through HWSF's cycle scheme for some time.
This is the moment when her brand new bike finally arrived. It was provided by a very generous donor along with a new helmet and hi-vis jacket. The girl's mother (pictured) received it, and we're told that her daughter is thrilled that she can finally ride around with her friends.
Currently, we have about thirty refugees waiting for bikes and only a few in stock. We are particularly short of men's bikes. If you think you might be able to donate a bike in good condition, please contact Vicky: email@example.com
Or if you are in East Herts, please contact Catherine: firstname.lastname@example.org
