The Works Skatepark Christmas Bike Donation

Posted 16/12/2016

With the Festive season well underway, The Works Skatepark on Kitson Road in Leeds is in the middle of their Christmas Bike programme. The charity was set up with the aim of providing opportunities through sport, education and training and is the leading skatepark across the UK.

They have been running this drive for the past few years in order to keep the wheels of the city turning, can you help a child or young person this Christmas by donating an old bike?

You can take them straight to the skatepark, they will pick up or our branches in Headingley, Moortown and Oakwood are open and will receive the bikes to pass on to The Works Skatepark. Once the bikes have been collected, they will be recycled and given to children throughout Leeds.

  • Section 2 is ‘Easy Street’ with challenging obstacles used by all levels of skaters, inline and BMX riders.
  • Section 3 is ‘The Pool’ and a one of a kind ramp in the whole of the UK perfect for skating.
  • Section 4 is ‘Spine and Bowl’ for riders with a top deck of a 7ft bowl with a 5ft vertical extension.

Education at The Works 

They have a 14 to 16 as well as a 16-18 Programme that have been developed in order to raise aspirations of young people through supported vocational training in a relaxed environment. Rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted, the schools that have been built here cater for a full range of activities from BMX and skateboarding to NVQ Qualifications.

On top of this, the charity has partnered with the NHS as well as schools and youth groups from across Leeds to offer alternative PE lessons and engaging sessions.
