A Sutton Coldfield based Social Enterprise, set up to repair and recycle old bikes, get more people cycling, develop skills and related activities, has received a boost from leading powder coatings company, Thermaset Limited
Bike2life CIC, based in Mere Green, Sutton Coldfield received a donation of powder from the Tamworth based company and at one of its regular bike maintenance sessions, held in its workshop in a chapel in St James’ Road, member, Ray Harris unveiled the products.
The powder will be used to restore the frames of some of the cycles that have been donated to the enterprise.
“The powder from Thermaset will be really useful to us and will be put to good use.”
RAY HARRIS, BIKE2LIFE.
“It’s great to have this sort of backing and recognition from a local business and we hope that other organisations might also support what we are doing. Bike2life is starting to have a big impact in the community and more and more people are getting involved in our activities and coming along to our workshop either to donate a bike or to buy one of our restored bikes. We also welcome people who want to learn how to maintain and look after their bikes and we will teach them.”
JIM EVERETT, CO-FOUNDER, BIKE2LIFE.
“My friend, Ray Harris told me all about Bike2life and we were delighted to donate some of our powder for this very worthy cause.”
