A heap of junk recycled into a brand new bike

A very special bike is being used in a sponsored 200 mile ride to raise money for the Lord Mayor's nominated charity, Cancer Research Wales.

Cardiff Cycle Workshop, a community enterprise based in Ely, have magically turned parts from unwanted bicycles, either donated by members of the public or left at some of the city's Household Waste Recycling Centres into a much sought after brand new bike.

Cardiff Council employee John Holloman, who is based at the Mansion House has set himself the challenge of cycling to and from work every day for a week, which will not only help raise funds for the Charity, help reduce John's carbon footprint but also help to highlight the fabulous work of Cardiff Cycle Workshop who really have transformed one persons junk into another's sustainable transport.

To sponsor John, visit: www.justgiving.com/JohnHolloman1 or by sending a cheque payable to Cardiff Council Lord Mayor's Charity to: Protocol Office, Mansion House, Richmond Road, Cardiff CF24 3UN, remembering to write a contact telephone number on the back. Those who have sponsored John will have the chance to win the bike in a raffle.

To donate a bicycle to the Cardiff Cycle Workshop or find out more about their bike sales please call 029 2039 7283 or visit: www.cycletrainingwales.org.uk
