Bike Charity

Be grateful if anyone can let me know of a bike charity within a twenty-five mile radius of Doncaster. I've a bike and assorted bits and bobs I'd like to donate.

Seen them,thanks Gaz. I should've been clearer but was hoping someone might know of a local group who put the bikes to actual use rather than flog them on. Bit of a long-shot, I know.

What do you mean by that? One of the places in gaz's link is Positive Youth in Selby that have a bike loan service for youth in the Selby district. Doesn't that count as putting the to use? Or is it not local enough?

Halfords have a bike re-cycle partnership scheme, nearest drop off may be a bit further than you wanted.
