|From 1st January 2017, the Mr Cycles (Seaford) and Giant (Shoreham) bike stores will be helping the Sussex Community Development Association (SCDA) with their Bike Recycling Project. The project is based at a workshop in Newhaven but will benefit the long-term unemployed and socially inactive across Sussex. Rod Lambert, proprietor of Mr Cycles and one of the founder members of Cycle Seahaven, will be providing help and advice to the project and the two shops will be passing on any bikes they receive as part of trade-in offer that will run throughout January. Previously customers would ask the cycle shop to dispose of bikes or components such as handlebars, tyres or saddles that they no longer required and the shop would do its best to pass them to other cyclists. Now these will be passed on to the SCDA bike recycling project.|
|George Stonehouse of SCDA explains: We’re running a Re-Cycle Project that involves re-cycling, maintaining and selling bicycles. The idea is to get members of the community involved in the fixing, maintaining and selling these bikes, to learn work-related skills that they can use in the workplace, help develop the individual’s confidence and make them more employable. The participants will then be able to use the bikes to get to and from work, or they will be sold in the SCDA charity shops and the money would be used to fund the running costs of the project and the charity. We’re grateful for the help and assistance offered by Rod and the Mr Cycles team.
