NEWTOWNABBEY Rotary Club is urging local people to donate unwanted bicycles to the ‘Bikes 4 Africa’ project - just one of a number of charities and worthy causes the club is backing during this, its 50th anniversary year.

Newtownabbey Rotary, which recently published an anniversary booklet covering the history of the club and the growth of the Rotary movement, supports a number of local organisations, including the Northern Ireland Hospice, Chest Heart and Stroke, Alzheimer’s Society and the Meningitis Trust.

Its members also back a number of international projects, such as the Bikes 4 Africa initiative which refurbishes second hand bikes and delivers them to communities in Gambia where they enable children to get to and from school more easily.
