Wheels for Life gets a supportive boost by local firm, Ringrose Law
Active Lincolnshire is overseeing the new Wheels for Life scheme for bike donations in Lincolnshire. This county-wide programme takes pre-loved bikes and brings them back to a usable condition for them to be gifted to people who do not have the opportunity to enjoy the varied benefits of owning a bike.
We are delighted that Ringrose Law have come on board with the scheme as a sponsor; They will be sponsoring a bike a month and donating water bottles and bike lights which will be provided with each bike that is given away. John Knight, Senior Director at Ringrose Law says;
“We are thrilled to join forces with Active Lincolnshire's Wheels for Life scheme. This initiative resonates with our core values of community support and well-being enhancement. We believe that everyone should have access to the joys of cycling, and we're excited to be a part of making that a reality in Lincolnshire."
Both John Knight and Partner Richard Teare actively promote safe cycling within their work as Personal Injury Solicitors, and both play a role in Lincolnshire's cycling community. They are members of the Lincoln Velo Club, Spoke and major sponsors of the Lincs C2C2C 100-mile charity cycle ride each year. This partnership with Active Lincolnshire further demonstrates their support and eagerness to educate others about safe cycling in the local cycling community.
Ringrose Law have been delivering legal services to individuals and businesses across Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire for over 100 years and have become a trusted Solicitor of choice for many clients. They have built a strong reputation based on service, integrity and ability to get the best results for their clients. At Ringrose Law, their ethos is to play a part in making a difference; making a difference to people, clients and the communities within which they live and work.
Active Lincolnshire are keen for other local organisations to support the Wheels for Life scheme as hubs are launched across the county. Sponsorship packages start from just £200 and offer a range of options - from sponsoring an individual bike refurbishment to supporting one of the local hubs. As a sponsor you will be supporting the scheme that is enabling people in transport poverty to have more independence, improving their mental and physical health, saving bikes from landfill and helping to the environment, whilst supporting a network of community and voluntary organisation across Lincolnshire.
Active Lincolnshire’s Chief Executive, Emma Tatlow, commented:
‘‘We are really grateful to Ringrose Law for supporting the Wheels for Life scheme. The initial funding to establish the hubs and train the mechanics was from our Sport England Together Fund grant programme, and it was always the intention that this scheme became self-sustaining. Support from businesses is part of that plan and will enable more bikes to be safely donated to those people across Lincolnshire in transport poverty.’’
