Donate a Bike

Have you got an unused bike that could go to a refugee? With millions of displaced people from Afghanistan, Syria, Ukraine and around the world ERC are supporting “Bikes for Refugees” (Scottish Charity SC047302) and are looking for bike donations that can help.

Bikes are Brilliant

Bikes are a simple way of supporting refugees and asylum seekers. They mean independence and freedom. You can make journeys to work and school cheaply and efficiently. Bikes allow you to explore your new country, keep fit and maybe take up racing. ERC are keen to help and make a bigger contribution.

Bikes for Refugees

Every bike is valuable, but it helps Bikes for Refugees if they are ready to go. All bikes are safety checked but fixing stuff takes up valuable mechanics' time. From kids' scoot-bikes to specialist TT machines all bikes are welcome. Vintage and high-end bikes are extra special as they can be sold-on to fund the cost of new locks, crash hats and other kit. Nothing is wasted.

Book up

If you have a bike for collection ERC will be operating a collection van for house-to-house pick-up in early April. Please email obrookes@hotmail.com to book in for collection.

with thanks,
