Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
We wanted to put something back into the community,
So the idea of the CycleRecycle Foundation was born.
We understand that times can be tough and that if someone is struggling for money, a child's bicycle can be an expensive and non-essential purchase, and we know that many children go without for this reason.
We want to help change this.
We wanted to provide a voucher to qualifying families.
With financial donations made by our customers, and businesses and grants.
If we took the example of a £60 child's bike
• £20 would come from financial donations from public/businesses
• £20 would be discounted by CycleRecycle
• £20 paid by the voucher owner
We feel its important that the voucher owner pays something towards the cost of the bicycle, so they can take full ownership of the bike
The families would be selected for a voucher by Suffolk County Councils Early Help Team
If you would like to help a child to get a bicycle,
you can donate to the CycleRecycle foundation
