We have an exciting announcement to make! The Bicycles for Change team has been working hard to secure the long term sustainability of our charitable work and we are excited to share that as of 14 January 2019, Bicycles for Change will merge with Bikes for Life.
We have struggled over the last few years to secure adequate funding to transport donated bikes to our partner charity in Namibia. By merging with Bikes for Life we’ll have the security of reliable funding and a bigger volunteer base to run the day to day operations of the charity. Bicycles for Change and Bikes for Life share a deeply aligned vision and purpose to alleviate poverty through re-purposed bicycles and bicycle related enterprise, and together we hope to send more bikes to more communities in Australia and abroad.
We are also excited to announce that in partnership with Bikes for Life we have secured a new site at Kimbriki resource recovery centre in Terry Hills. And our site in Berrima at the Resource Recovery Centre is going as strong as ever. Check out the Bikes for Life home page for more information about these sites and the details for donating a bike.
From the team at Bicycles for Change, we would like to thank you, our valued donors, volunteers and benefactors for all your support over the past eight years. Your generosity has benefited thousands of people in Namibia where a bike serves as an invaluable asset that can help lift a family out of poverty by providing affordable and reliable transportation. We are delighted to be partnering with the great team at Bikes for Life and together we hope to continue with this important work on an even bigger scale. We hope you will join us and support this fantastic cause under the Bikes for Life banner. Let’s ride on!
Our deepest thanks,
The Bicycles for Change team
