One of our local districts is in need of some Childrens bikes for a Cub event at Hadleigh Park.

If you have a bike that can either be borrowed or donated contact Helen directly. Her details and more information can be found below.Helen Rowe asks Thundersley Village readers “Please could you update my post to:PLEASE CAN YOU HELP - Have you a child’s bike in fairly good condition tucked away that could be borrowed or donated?

The bikes have to have mountain bike tyres and suitable for rough terrain (Not thin road tyres) and are required for a Cub Scout and Scout Activity weekend in June at Hadleigh Park.

If your bike has a minor problem such as a puncture, brake pad problem etc then we can sort that. All suitable bikes will be made fit to ride and returned as such. As the children’s age ranges are between 8 and 14 there will be many sizes required, such as 16”, 20” and 24” wheel sizes mainly for the Cub Scouts use and 15” and 17” frames or 26”, 27.5” wheel sizes for the Scouts to use.

Sadly, our Scout budget is not great so we are unable to purchase them. If any bikes are donated then they would be used again for the children. There is a requirement of at least 30 bikes. So please have a look in your sheds.
Your loan or donation would be greatly appreciated.

Message me on 07747 701768 if you are able to assist or have any questions. Thank you. Please share this. Helen Rowe, District Cub Scout Leader, Castle Point.”
