‘Buy-A-Bike’ Appeal

Kenilworth Mayoral Charity Fund 2020-21

Appeal Running November 2020 to May 2021

A £50 bike or a £25 bike frame helps girls go safely to school in Uyogo, Kenilworth’s link town in Tanzania

One of the two local charities I am helping to raise money for is the Kenilworth-Uyogo Friendship Link. This charity has been chosen to reflect one of the aspects of living in Kenilworth, namely that we are outward-looking with a concern for those less fortunate than ourselves. 

Cllr Richard Dickson – Mayor of Kenilworth 2020-21

Kenilworth has had a friendship link with Uyogo in Tanzania for more than 40 years, since the International Year of the Child in 1979.  Girls walking to the new secondary school that’s opened in the village, from their homes in neighbouring communities are in significant danger of being attacked.  Uyogo community leaders have asked for help to provide bicycles for girls so they can cycle safely to and from school, in groups. All bikes will be bought locally in Tanzania and clearly marked as a KUFL bike.

To buy a ‘bike’ or ‘bike-frame’ as an alternative gift for a friend or member of your family,
