The Avenues Bicycle Project Recycling bicycles across Hull and the  East Riding of  Yorkshire since 2010

Reg. Charity Number 1163510

In 2016 we tried a new way of sending bikes to West Africa. Instead of using a shipping line container and loading all the bikes in one hectic day, we bought our own container and loaded at a more leisurely rate throughout the year. We decided that we would donate the container, once it had been emptied of bicycles by the Village Bicycle Project in Sierra Leone, for conversion to a classroom, and to pay the cost of the conversion. The Freetown Society in Hull introduced us to a community group in Freetown, Conforti Community Aid, which in turn arranged for the container to be donated to The Love of God Primary School in the east of the city. Here are the results.
