A CHARITY that helps keep larger items from going to landfill, is having a bike sale next month.

Refurbs Wrexham’s Big Bike Sale starts on Friday, July 1, and will run every Friday throughout the month.

They will be stocking a wide range of bikes suitable for children, teenagers, and adults, creating the perfect opportunity to get a bike in time this summer.

The bikes have been part of Refurbs ‘Bike Refurb’ project run at their site in Flint. The Bike Refurb project involves the refurbishment of bikes that are no longer wanted or fit for purpose. The bikes are collected from local household recycling centres, skip sites or they have been donated.

They have been refurbished back to life by volunteers led by a qualified Cytech mechanic. The volunteers undertake various tasks to refurbish the bikes back to being good to use, with all bikes undergoing a full pre-delivery inspection check from a qualified Cytech mechanic before sale.

Lisa Jones, project manager for Bike Refurbs said: “The Bike Refurbs project has so much to offer. New skills and confidence for the volunteers. Reducing waste that is sent to landfill and CO2 emissions and providing quality affordable bikes, whether that’s for transport to work, an everyday active lifestyle or for children to learn to ride and play."

The bikes will be available to purchase from the Refurbs Wrexham store at the bottom of Henblas Street, Wrexham, every Friday throughout July 2022. There will be a wide range of bikes suitable for all ages and abilities starting from £15.

Refurbs is a registered charity with the aim to promote the reusing and recycling of household furniture and appliances to reduce waste. The sale of these household items allows them to continue their work as a charity offering work placements, training, and volunteering opportunities for the local community.
