Working in partnership with The University of the West of England, The Cycle Hub was given the opportunity to recycle old bikes that students had abandoned at UWE campus. After these bikes were fully safety checked and tuned up they were then sold to current UWE students. The Cycle Hub raised £265 in the process, which has kindly been donated to our project. With this money we have been able to purchase a new set of tools for our ever-expanding workshop. A huge thank you to The Cycle Hub for their support. Happy days!
