This month’s Community Fund Focus is on Just Cycle – a Tweedbank-based charity which aims to bring communities together and reduce landfill by recycling and upcycling old and broken bicycles.
Founded in 2014, the charity now has four directors. Fundraiser Alison Cameron tells us more about what the charity does:
“Our mission is to reduce inequalities, and encourage strong intergenerational relationships by involving all sectors of the community in our work. This includes recycling and re-using the bikes, and encouraging cycling among all sectors, including socially disadvantaged or isolated people.”
