Tarporley Rotary has a busy weekend ahead, collecting old bikes on behalf of the Margaret Carey Foundation.
Good Xmas? Did you or any of your family get a new bike? Fantastic! Anybody who has an old bike to donate to a very worthy cause is welcome to bring it along to Beeston Market this Saturday, 7th January between 9.30am and 11.30am.
The bikes collected go to a program run by the Margaret Carey Foundation. They rescue scrapped bicycles that are no longer in use and set up workshops where prisoners clean, adjust and repair them to a high standard. They then give the refurbished bikes to communities in need, in England and in developing countries.
In this way, prisoners work to make life easier and better for disadvantaged people. At the same time as helping others, offenders learn to develop a positive work ethic, gain useful skills and become better prepared for employment after release
Simply bring your bikes along to Beeston Market, whatever condition they're in. For further information email Mike Lloyd, contact@tarporleyRotary.org.uk, or phone Andrew Wallace on 07850 250641.
