Earlier this year, we announced the start of a special partnership with The Bike Project. A unique charity which takes in second-hand bikes, refurbishes them, and donates them to refugees and asylum seekers. When that announcement was made, we committed to supporting The Bike Project in three main ways:
All bikes must be pre-registered via the Bike Project website. You can also find additional drop-off points if another location suits you better.
Just in time for the holidays, we’re pleased to announce an in-app fundraiser for The Bike Project’s Christmas Appeal.
The Bike Project with Bolt is a unique category in our app, just like a standard Bolt trip. The only difference is that your trip will include an extra 50p cost which is given to The Bike Project as a direct donation. Select The Bike Project category, and a uniquely branded car will appear on your screen to take you on your merry way.
For Bolt drivers – your trips are priced just like normal Bolt trips. The 50p addition will not come from driver earnings. The new category will be available in the Bolt app in London from the 1st – 5th of December 2022.
Your contributions will have an immediate impact on providing cycling-themed gifts for refugees. These include safety kits, cycling lessons and bikes for refugees and their families.
Keen to learn more about the Bike Project or considering a new volunteer opportunity? You can learn all about their initiatives by visiting The Bike Project website. Thanks in advance for your support and for providing the gift of mobility during the festive season.
When you confirm a ride in the Bolt App, you may elect to add a charitable donation of 50p on top of the Fare for your ride (minus applicable taxes) by electing the ‘The Bike Project’ during this Campaign. This is a category list clicked on within the Bolt App, which includes the 50p donation in the cost of your ride Fare when selected. The Fare pricing itself will remain unchanged. On completion of your ride, this 50p will then be donated to the Project, to assist its mission of making mobility more accessible to the United Kingdom’s refugee community.
