Making A Difference: The Story of the Little Red Trike

This little red trike has been on a big journey! Many years ago, some clever person rescued it from a skip at the Ryegate Child Development Centre. It wasn’t rubbish – there were many more children who’d love to get on three wheels. The second hand trike was handed to Sheffield Cycling 4 All to be fixed up and given a clean. After making sure everything was in working order, Sheffield Cycling 4 All kindly gave it to a young member of SHASBAH, Edith.

Edith loved her red trike and rode it loads and loads, but eventually she grew up. The trike didn’t fit her anymore. So she and her family decided that they wanted to pass it on to a new home! Chris at Halfords gave the bike a new brake, a free service and a shiny new bell. After that, off went the bike to Leo, another little SHASBAH member in Wombwell, with the help of SHASBAH’s hard-working and dedicated befriending coordinator.
