By donating your unwanted bike, you can help us to provide more care for more people. Please note, we currently only accept bikes in the south of the UK due to our current setup.
The Sue Ryder Bicycle Workshop
We are proud to share a focus on environmental and social responsibility issues together. The bikes we sell at Sue Ryder are always popular and receiving bicycles that we can renovate or upcycle means that we can generate great value for money bicycles and reduce waste.
How does the scheme work?
As a charity, our aim is to provide more care for more people and expand the services we provide, include in the community and online, to reach wider audiences. You can help us to achieve this by donating your adult and youth bikes that you no longer use.
What is the bicycle workshop?
We work closely with HMP services to provide purposeful activity within a workshop environment. The Sue Ryder Bicycle Workshop enables industries to build on the rehabilitative culture within the prison and provide a greater depth to learning and development.
As well as gaining new skills and experience, inmates will also get job satisfaction with purposeful activity. At the end of the course they will be awarded a Cytech certificate to help access employment after release.
Together, we can help more inmates give back to the community, whilst they serve their sentences, which ultimately could help to reduce re-offending. We are diverting bikes from landfill and raising money to provide more care for more people, making this a very worthwhile project indeed.
Thank you to our existing partners
The Sue Ryder Bicycle Workshop initiative aims to tackle environmental and social issues by converting unwanted bikes into great value bikes for people to access.
Our partnership with the Ministry of Justice allows us to work with HMP workshops and create employment and training opportunities for prisoners. Together, we have provided a purposeful working environment where people are encouraged to learn and achieve a qualification in bicycle mechanics.
