Abercrombie & Kent has teamed up with Wheels of Change, a charity which aims to empower people in developing countries by providing bicycles and establishing small bike sales and repair businesses. WOC converts the shipping container into a bike shop and provides training in bicycle mechanics to people in the community in order to create new jobs.
How you can help
On the 11th April 2015 we're bringing a shipping container to Cheltenham with the goal of filling it with as many used bikes as possible. So check your garages for unwanted or forgotten bikes and ask your friends and family to do the same. Bikes don't need to be in excellent condition, but they do need to be repairable and owing to Zambian terrain they'll need to be mountain, trail or road bikes.
Cheltenham College, one of the UK’s leading co-educational independent schools, are supporting the project and have generously allowed us to house the container within their school grounds.
