Our ‘Welcome Wheels’ campaign raised over £11,000 in crowdfunding earlier in 2018. The funds will go towards providing secondhand bikes, locks, helmets, lights, bells and cycle training for refugees and asylum seekers in Norwich.
Our partners New Routes, English+, Norwich International Youth Project and NCC’s People from Abroad Team are referring individuals to us for the bikes.
If you work with someone who is eligible for Welcome Wheels and needs a bicycle please get in touch with one of the organisations above to request a referral.
Demand has been high and we are trying to eke out the funding so that we can provide as many bike ‘packages’ as possible. Further donations of suitable bikes (mountain or hybrid bikes in fair condition, particularly smaller sizes) are still welcome for this project.
