Clonmel Borough District and Environment &Climate Action Section of Tipperary County Council are delighted to assist Clonmel Rotary Club Bikes for Africa project this year. Rotary Club, Clonmel have been involved for the last 6 years with this initiative. They have collected between 50 and 80 reasonably good bicycles on an annual basis for the last 5/6 years and arranged for these to be transported to Loughran House, an open prison facility in Co.Cavan. The bicycles are repaired/serviced by the prisoners, with parts/materials supplied by Rotary Club. The bicycles are then shipped by container to Africa and are distributed to schools in various areas. This helps students to get to and from educational facilities much faster, thus contributing to increased educational periods and greater educational achievements.
