The Bike Project

We refurbish secondhand bikes to donate to refugees and asylum seekers.

Charity Registration No. 1152354

Story

Imagine living on £36 a week. It's enough for food, perhaps, but what about travel? If you need a new pair of shoes, what sacrifices will you have to make? These hard choices are the daily reality of a refugee in London.

Bikes to the Rescue! The Bike Project take second-hand bikes, fix them up and donate them to refugees and asylum-seekers. Why? One of their bikes can save a refugee £21 a week in bus fares. Having fled persecution and atrocity in their homeland, a bike helps them access food banks, legal advice, healthcare, education and more.

For every £100 raised, you can provide a refugee with a secondhand bike refurbished by professional mechanics, a set of lights, a helmet, a lock, a reflective vest, and a short road safety course.
