Interlinkx youth and community bike clubs get donated bikes from Hackney's police stations
Some of the bikes that have been accumulating at Hackney's Police stations are finally being sent Interlinkx's way, It's well worth the wait - thank you! This is with an agreement that any youngsters working on them are given qualified instruction and make positive community contributions. These bikes are to be released after being made road worthy and registered with Immobilise.
Young people are to be advised about how to avoid loosing their new bikes and will offered an incentive to keep hold of it for as long as they want to. No more of that "easy come easy go" attitude please.
Also as a priority, two or three cycles will be prepared and sent to appreciative recipients via Re-Cycle bikes for Africa or shipped by air freight direct to one of our contacts in Kampala, Uganda.
