Bikes for FODI

This week we’ve been able to support Friends of the Drop In Sunderland who help refugees and asylum seekers. They had a long list of people in need of a bike to help them access appointments, education and volunteering. We were able to provide surplus bikes which we were struggling to store. Two of our wonderful volunteers kindly loaded the bikes up and delivered them to Othman who will be working on the bikes before they are distributed. A FODI representative said “just to say a  big thank you from all of us here for the bikes we got today. Truly wonderful and Othman is genuinely excited about the prospect of fixing them up! We took some children’s bikes to put in the office and we’ve already got a parent bringing her daughter tomorrow to check out one for her. So brilliant.”IMG_20190131_112928001_HDR
