Supporting Those Who Support Us - Gifting Bicycles to NHS Staff
The last year has brought challenges, loss and moments of sadness to us all. But you may have also experienced an increased sense of community. Neighbours helping those who needed it with their shopping. The sound of clapping and wooden spoons hitting saucepans to support our NHS. And a greater sense of compassion for those less fortunate.
It is our belief that this demonstrates the healing power of community cohesion and it is why we created Pro Bike Service: to accelerate the transition to an inclusive, empowered, resilient and regenerative economy. We believe deeply in the transformative power of active travel, social inclusivity and the need for trust, sharing and stewardship within our community.
With this aim, we recently teamed up with the Met Police Central East Command Unit to gift over 100 bicycles to NHS staff in the Barts Health NHS Trust. The bicycles, stolen but unclaimed, have been in police storage for a long time and would otherwise have been left unused and eventually scrapped.
Pro Bike Service, along with our supporting partners, will be gifting our time and expertise to service and repair every bike for those who have been supporting us during this challenging time. As all bicycles need new parts to bring them back to their former glory, we are asking the wider community to help fund these costs.
All the money raised will go directly to the cost of repairing the bicycles.
Your support will enable more bikes to be gifted to those who need them most - someone in the frontline of the NHS.
We are incredibly grateful for your gifts. Together, we can help support those who've been working tirelessly to support us all.
