Trade-In is back for 2018 and there are many good reasons why it’s our favourite campaign: It’s springtime and everyone is getting back into the spirit of cycling, customers can save on a shiny new bike while decluttering their sheds or garages at the same time, and, best of all, each and every donated bike serves a good cause! Proud to be working with 18 social enterprises across the UK, here we put the spotlight on our different partner charities throughout the campaign. Next up, Cranks Bikes…
Cranks Bikes Brighton
Your primary aim
To provide bike maintenance facilities to everyone, regardless of income, gender, race or sexuality. Also to recycle bikes and parts to make cycling accessible to all.
Number of employees or volunteers
Number of bikes recycled/refurbished each year
Workshops/courses that you offer
We offer drop in bike maintenance sessions 3 days a week where anyone can bring bike along to use our tools with the help of our experienced volunteers.
Benefits gained from Evans Cycles Trade In
We get a fresh supply of used bikes at the time of year when they are most in demand. This allows us to provide good quality used bikes to many people while at the same time bringing invaluable income to keep the workshop running.
Future projects and ambitions
We would like to train up more volunteers so we can open the workshop to the public on additional days every week.
