Team Ecovia 2020’s story

Help us get more bikes on the roads for New Scots!

Through a 5-day cycle challenge in Portugal I'm raising funds for Bikes for Refugees Scotland (you might know I I am a proud board member of BfR as well).

With BfR we refurbish donated bikes for New Scots (refugees/asylum seekers), which provides them with freedom of movement and the means to connect with communities, essential services. Moreover, makes it easier to meet new people and forge new friendships.

Since it's start in 2016, BfR has distributed 800+ bikes to isolated individuals and families who have arrived in Scotland seeking safety and shelter from war, violence, torture and persecution.

Please help me reach (or smash!) my target so we can get more bikes out.

All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.


Bikes for Refugees (Scotland)

Bikes help New Scots (refugees/asylum seekers) to make Scotland their home by supporting families to link with local communities, essential services and people. New Scots use their bikes to cycle to valuable language classes, essential healthcare appointments and to seek work and volunteering opportunities. People use bikes on a daily basis to cycle to college and school. Bikes reduce social isolation and loneliness and provide opportunities to meet other people and to make new friends.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
