Show Some Love is a community project initiative with a notion to not only help someone less fortunate, but to empower kids at risk, who may need a helping loving hand to get back on track.
Founder Ricus Grimbeek has been blown away by the charity and involvement shown by the community already, “It has only been two short weeks since the introduction of Show Some Love and already more than 20 bikes have been donated that will soon be transformed back to life and road worthiness,” said Ricus.
Both excited and humbled by the reactions to Show Some Love, Magdaleen can’t wait to start working on restoring the very first bike in the store workshop. “We are very grateful for the support and donations that has made it possible to get this project off the ground, it has given us the confidence that it will only get bigger and better,” said Magdaleen.
Apart from the donated bikes, Show Some Love has received significant support from a number of people putting their hands up to be involved and help in ensuring the bikes hit the road once again.
The C4 City Cycles workshop will be the location where the magic takes place, providing the space, tools and supporting the Show Some Love project, with the mechanical skills that will be required. C4 City Cycles workshop mechanics are not only thrilled, but also charged with a greater purpose to be part of such a wonderful cause.
“We invite you to be part of our journey by either donating an old bike or your time to learn new skills and restore the bike, in collaboration with a mechanic, or let us know about someone who you feel could benefit from a refurbished bike” said the Show Some Love Team.
