Are you looking to get involved with some charity fundraising? You can run your own charity fundraising event, or take part in one of our Re-Cycle challenges. 

Do your own fundraising

Organise your own event to raise money for Re-Cycle so we can support even more people in Africa, by providing them with a re-cycled bicycle. We’ll help you along the way with materials, ideas and loads of support.

Whatever you decide to do we’ll be right behind you giving you all the support and encouragement you need. 

We will even send you a FREE RE-CYCLE FUNDRAISING TOOLKIT! What are you waiting for? 

Every penny you raise will make a real difference to the lives of men, women and children who are less fortunate, enabling them to gain a greater independence and better quality of life through bicycle re-use.

Our Impact

Re-Cycle has been sending bikes to Africa for 25 years and has sent over 130,000 bikes and hundreds of thousands of spare parts.

Why Bicycles?

In the UK, thousands of bikes are thrown away or lie unused in sheds and garages, whilst many people in Africa have no access to transport of any kind.


Whether you decide to make a one-off donation or monthly gift, we promise that the donation you make to us today will be used to change lives in Africa.
