Bikes 4 Africa

Do you have you a forgotten or abandoned bike in your tool shed or perhaps a vague recollection of a bike lost among the bushes or a ditch at the end of your garden. If so, Sheridan Landscaping as a members of the Association of Landscape Contractors of Ireland (ALCI) would love to hear from you. Our mission for 2011 is to rescue another full container of bikes from gardens all over Ireland to send them to Africa. Our charity partners and ALCI are committed to shipping bikes in any condition to rural African communities. Every bike part will be used by township communities to re-cycle and restore bicycles. The work will provide employment and funds to distribute affordable bikes for everyone in need, young or old.

Last year Sheridan Landscaping collected 127 donated bikes from the local community and over 1,000 unwanted bikes were donated from across the country.
