If I donate a bike to the workshop … what happens to the bike?
- The workshop is run by a charity (Bikes for Refugees SA Inc). Welfare agencies refer clients to us, and we give a free bike to use for transport or recreation.
- Mostly, we help refugee families in Adelaide. We also help other people in hardship e.g low income.
The numbers below show what happens, to bikes donated to us
- most bikes (70%) … repaired and serviced, then given free to people in need.
- 10% of bikes .. used for parts to fix up other bikes.
- remaining 20% .. not needed for above, so can be sold to raise money.
This is what we do with the money
- About half is needed to run the workshop and buy bike parts and bike tools.
- What’s left , we give to charities that help refugees e.g Red Cross, UNHCR, Australian Refugee Association.
In 2016-7, we received 1400 donated bikes.
