Past Community Projects
Thanks to a generous grant from Energy Saving Trust, we were able to purchase four e-cargo bikes.
Our original dream was to use them to reduce the journey made by our diesel vans. However, like most organisations, we had to adapt these plans due to Covid-19. We have now begun leasing out the cargo bike to various charities in our community.
We started Hero Bikes to provide free bikes to key workers during the first national lockdown.
When we saw the impact Covid-19 was going to have on our community, we realised we could help. Transportation during the first national lockdown became restricted, and key-workers who couldn’t work from home had an increased risk of exposure and less transport options available.
