The Bike Project is a small charity that collects second hand bikes to give to refugees.

It is asking local residents to bring their unwanted bikes to St. John’s Church in Isleworth. These are then refurbished.

Refugees are required to live on £37.75 a week and are not allowed to work. Bikes allow refugees to save money on transport, get a safe means to exercise and so much more

The Bike Project is also looking for more volunteers to host drop off points. It will help you organise a bike donation drive. All you need is bags of enthusiasm and a few hours of your time. Everything else, including how to market your pop-up, will be provided by them.

St. John’s Church is on St John’s Road (TW7 6NY). To arrange for the drop off of your donated bike contact Dave in advance on 07917 838 447 or by emailing

Find Articles Like This Useful? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
