Aldwyck Housing Group donate bikes to local charity



Aldwyck Housing Group has donated five bikes to charity Sue Ryder, to celebrate the launch of their new bicycle donation drop off points around Luton.

One adult bike and four children’s bikes were donated by Caretaker Darren Brown, and Head of Housing, Tony Campbell, to the collection point at Lewsey Community Centre in Luton.
All bikes donated will be sent to HM Prison The Mount, to be refurbished as part of the Sue Ryder Prison Volunteer Programme (PVP).

The average resale value of an adult bike sold through one of the charity shops is £45, with children’s bikes averaging £15, which will help to help continue their essential end of life services in the local area.

A regular supply of bikes helps the charity move closer to achieving the £250,000 target needed to keep their doors open and the services operating every month.

Tony Campbell, Head of Housing at Aldwyck Housing Group, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to make this donation of bikes to Sue Ryder to help them continue their important work in the local area.’
