A bike recycling workshop for young people in Kettering is in need of more bikes to be donated.

Re-bike runs courses for about 40 young people a week at the William Knibb Centre, in Alfred Street.

It usually picks up bikes from the police, but the force has changed the way it discards of stolen items.

The change has left the organisation short of bikes.

Project manager Wesley Cash said: “We’re looking for bikes of any standard and condition to work on.

“We fix them and sell them back into the community for a small price.

“The project trains young people and gives them a sense of fulfilment.”

Anyone wanting to donate a bike can drop it off at the William Knibb Centre.
