Kildare County Council appealing for old bikes for repair to be sent to children in Gambia

Kildare County Council working with other groups to send bikes to children in Gambia

Kildare County Council are currently working with Rotary International and the Prison Services to take old bikes and repair them in order to send to Gambia.

The repaired bikes will ensure that schoolchildren with a journey of five kilometres of more can get to school easily.

Kildare County Council are appealing for repairable bikes to brought to Silliot Hill where there is a designated container.
