Donegal County Council & Letterkenny Rotary Club to send 300 bicycles to Africa

A joint initiative between Donegal county council and the Letterkenny Rotary Club will see over 300 bicycles sent to Africa in the coming weeks.

An appeal which was launched by the Rotary Club in October to coincide with the first national Re-Use month was supported by Donegal County Council and Bryson Recycling.

300 bicycles of assorted sizes and standards were handed in at the Council’s six Recycling Centres including Laghy and Letterkenny late last year.

The bikes are now being refurbished at the Loughlan House Open prison in Co. Cavan to ensure they are fit for purpose.

Suzanne Bogan is the environmental officer with Donegal County Council and she told Ocean FM the final plan for the bikes.
