Re-Cycle is Celebrating a 10-Year Partnership with Halfords
Re-Cycle’s partnership with Halfords started in 2013 with the first delivery of bikes received on 8th May 2013
After delivering stock items in stores, Halfords collect the donated bikes and returns them to distribution centres in the Midlands, where they are all loaded into trailers for onward transportation to Re-Cycle. This model enables Re-Cycle to access quality used bicycles from all over the UK, with the added benefit of preventing them from potentially being thrown away to landfill.
This year we are celebrating the 10th anniversary of our partnership with Halfords and in those 10 years, through the generosity of Halfords and bike donors, Re-Cycle has received almost 80,000 bicycles.
Each bike we receive can help up to 6 people in Africa, so in the past 10 years, Halfords has helped Re-Cycle touch the lives of around 480,000 people and at the same time, perhaps saved thousands of bikes going to landfill in the UK!
We are so grateful to everyone who donates a bike to Re-Cycle and also to Halfords, for helping us move forward with our mission of ‘improving lives through bicycle re-use’. We are very much looking forward to the next 10 years of our partnership and to helping create even more long-lasting improvements to livelihoods in Africa.
There are over 70 participating Halfords stores across the UK where used bicycles can be dropped off for donation to Re-Cycle. These drop off points along with all of Re-Cycle’s other bike drop off locations can be found here https://re-cycle.org/where-to-donate-your-bike/
