Leicester bike charity gets moving again

by Emily Rooney

The Leicester Wheels for All charity (LWSA) has been able to borrow a van from the city council after its van caught fire.

The charity has a fleet of specially adapted bikes, for use by disabled adults and children, and aims to help them achieve independence through learning to cycle.

The van caught fire in the early hours of Tuesday (24NOV) morning last week, and firefighters were called, but were unable to stop the flames in time for the van to still be useable.

Leicester City Council has stepped up to help the charity, by letting them use one of its vans until LWSA can source a new one.

The loan van will help the charity provide some much needed fun for the people it normally helps in the run up to Christmas.
