"Not only are we passionate about all things cycling related, we are passionate about people." - Andy Williams (Director)
Ayudante C.I.C is a Community Interest Company, with the objective to provide meaningful Employment to local disadvantaged people. We achieve this by operating our sub-contract manufacturing facility providing a range of services to support our clients.
As well as operating Ayudante Bicycle Project which is where we recycle public donations of old or unwanted bikes. The bikes will be refurbished and sold with proceeds going back to support the project. We're starting to offer to volunteer to people who would prefer to help out in the bike area, which would involve stripping bikes down or if you have bikes to donate, you can either drop it off in store or collection can be arranged. Any donations will be gratefully received. We pride ourselves on providing a quality and efficient service.
Looking to donate a bike?
Look no further... We accept donations of ALL unwanted bicycles and parts. This includes toddler bikes, children's bikes and adult bike. Anything from Mountain Bikes to BMX's to folding bikes. We offer collection which can be arranged in the Stoke On Trent area via phone or email.
If you're wondering how your donation will help us, there are two ways your old bicycle may be used:
If the bike is in good enough condition your old bike will be fully stripped down, cleaned, completely overhauled, serviced and safety checked. The bike will go on to be advertised on multiple selling platforms and then sold back into the community as a low-cost alternative to a new bike. (We are a “not-for-profit” social enterprise, but have to generate enough money to keep the project running).
If the bike is not in good enough condition to be refurbished and sold, it will be stripped for usable parts and the rest recycled as best as possible. The second-hand parts will be used to help refurbish other bikes or to help keep bills down on repair work.
