Bikes 4 Life would like to sincerely acknowledge the incredible efforts of Sydney volunteer Mike Dumble. Mike has been regularly volunteering at our Sydney warehouse for 4 years, has assisted in a number of our corporate days and is an outstanding mentor to our Duke of Ed kids. Recently Mike nominated Bikes 4 Life to the Sage Foundation to receive a $5k grant. We are so excited to announce that we were successful in our application and are so grateful to both Mike and Sage for their support.
We have a new home!! Commencing November 15 2018, we will be operating from Kimbriki Resource Recovery Centre in Terrey Hills. We couldn’t have dreamed of a better fit, and we would like to sincerely thank the team at Kimbriki for their generous support. All of us at Bikes 4 Life share Kimbriki’s mantra: Rethink, Reduce, Reuse and Recycle and we are very proud to be doing our part to be helping both the environment, and those in need.Click here to read the Press Release announcing our new partnership.
Thank you to all of our supporters and volunteers who have supported us through our journey to find a new location.
