2017 is Interlinkx CiC & CC Hackney's tenth year.

Interlinx CiC, is also responsible for CC Hackney's HQ/house and home as well as leading on fund raising & community outreach. It's been ten years since founding in 2007. Our partner organisation (CC Hackney) came into being later in the same year.

Reporting on Nightingale's YBMP bike for Kampala, Uganda, East Africa

Local young volunteers, Mahmoud Soboh and Jelani Barry get to work on setting-up and preparing one of the clubs bikes (donated by Hackney police) to be shipped to our contact in Kampala, Uganda.
This small step is actually part of a new initiative to lead on to a youth exchange project with the working title: CC Hackney and Kampala CC Youth Exchange 2010-2012.
The idea of this venture is for a combined Interlinkx CIC Youth Bike Maintenance Club and Cycling Club Hackney sports delegation to visit Kampala in 2011. There they will invite a team of young Ugandan cycling enthusiasts back over to share in the 2012 London Olympic experience that will be happening in and around Hackney come 27 July-12 Aug (Olympic Games) and 29 Aug-9 Sept (Paralympic Games)

We're looking forward to cultivating relations and fund raising to make this possible for our partners in Uganda and our young cycling volunteers in Hackney.
The first phase of this activity is being supported by the Hackney Homes Staff Alpine Challenge Team, who will be helping during a reconnaissance and fact finding trip this November.
