    World Bicycle Relief was set up to empower people across Africa through donating bikes. They believe in mobilising people through the power of bicycles so that the distance no longer prevents access to healthcare, education and economic activity and so far they have donated over 200,00 bikes across Africa.

    The work the charity does is invaluable in helping rural Africa to develop, educate their children and fight disease. You can see more on the World Bicycle Relief website.

    Just £95 will buy a specially designed Buffalo Bike that WBR will send to communities across Africa – the money that you raise will have a direct impact on the lives of many across rural Africa.

    Remember: raise £285 or more for WBR and you’ll get a £35 refund.
