The Bike Project, located in the Old Print Works in Balsall Heath, refurbishes bikes and gives them to refugees to provide them with a much-needed means of transport and exercise. Some of the donated bikes are sold, to help fund the project.
If you have any unwanted bikes, it’s a good time to get them out and ready to donate: at Kings Heath Farmers market on Saturday May 1st, the Bike Project will be collecting unwanted bikes to put to good use, so please bring your old bikes (both children’s and adult’s) to the Village Square in Kings Heath between 10am and 2pm, and look for their collection point.
The project takes any bike of any size and in any condition as long as the frame isn’t cracked, dented or snapped and there is no more than 25% rust – they love a challenge, but can’t resurrect a write-off!
More information about The Bike Project can be seen on their website here.
