Bike Project

Date posted: 18 July 2019

Wilsons are involved in supporting an exciting initiative from the Bike Project designed to provide asylum seekers and refugees with bicycles.

 

    • Providing bicycles to asylum seekers and refugees can be an enormous source of support because it provides a means of transport which is completely free.
    • The asylum support rate for a single person in London is £37.75 per week.  Meeting transport costs and such on an extremely limited budget is basically impossible.

 

You can find out more about the bike project here:

 

The bike project also provides cycling lessons, safety equipment such as helmets and they are also involved in training mechanics.

 

The bike project is appealing for unwanted bikes which they will refurbish and provide to asylum seekers and refugees.

 

Our office is hosting a pop up bike collection event to support the bike project on

Friday 2 August 2019 between 5-7pm

 

We are sending out a call for any unwanted bikes and you are welcome to bring them to our offices at the above collection time.

 

Further information about the appeal is available from Katy Robinson on direct line 020 8885 7994 or email k.robinson@wilsonllp.co.uk.
