Re~Cycle (Bikes to Africa)

We send unwanted bicycles to Africa to improve access water, education and jobs

Charity Registration No. 1063570


2015 is the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta by King John, persuaded by the Barons from 23 towns and villages across England. The shortest route between them is 800 miles.

I am the Town Clerk of Trowbridge in Wiltshire, one of the 22 Baron Towns, the largest with a town council and one of the few which has grown into a market and industrial town over 800 years.

I will be cycling the 800 miles in aid of two charities; Dorothy House Hospice Care and Re~cycle (Bicycle Aid for Africa). You can make a donation to both or just to one. Follow this link for my Dorothy House Hospice Care page
