Badshot Lea Village Infant School
Bike Project Surrey
Who is Bike Project Surrey for?
Students not in school come to us for work experience, to learn about bikes and get an industry recognised qualification in Bicycle Care and Maintenance so that they have choices when they leave school.
People in the local community not in work, training or education can come to us to learn about bikes, get work experience and we become a positive part of their routine and life.
Volunteers support students, adults or just work on bikes – because they love bikes too.
Everyone who becomes part of Bike Project Surrey Team contributes to the welcoming and inclusive approach so that people feel good and that they belong at Bike Project Surrey.
- Everyone in the community has the chance to learn about bikes and how to look after them in an environment that is inclusive, welcoming and happy so that people feel valued and that they belong.
- Affordable bikes for the community to buy and use to travel, be healthy, fit and happy.
- Affordable bike service available to the community so that their bikes stay on the road.
- Bikes and parts recycled so that they do not contribute to landfill or pollute the environment. Riding bikes means you’re not driving.
We will provide learning opportunities around bikes for everyone – but especially for young people and adults who are not in education, employment or training. We will offer this through our Alternative Provision and adult placements.
This will be successful because Bike Project Surrey workshops are positive, happy and inclusive places to work and be with others. A shared interest and love of bikes means that while people are at Bike Project Surrey they will meet and learn skills and values from others who they might not otherwise have met.
The bikes we work on will be make made for everyone in the community as affordable recycled bikes for getting about on and keeping fit and healthy. This will also contribute an income to support the vision.
Students, adults and volunteers will be offered industry recognised qualifications, work experience and chance to ‘earn a bike’.
So Bike Project Surrey will…
- Offer access to learning and skills in the local community though partnership with Guildford College
- Provide a range of volunteering opportunities in an inclusive, non-judgemental and supportive environment
- Create opportunities to develop new skills to enhance employability
- Encourage skill-sharing and independence, where new skills are learned in a way that is empowering for all
- Involve volunteers in setting-up a new business and inspire the creation of other similar initiatives
- Promote access to cycling as an affordable and sustainable transport option
- Divert bicycles and their parts from recycling and landfill
- Encourage healthy lifestyles

GOLO, Godalming Lottery
Golo is a small society lottery, run like a raffle, to raise funds for local causes in Godalming, and to foster community spirit
The Godalming Lottery was started by the Go-Godalming Association in 2008 to raise funds for local causes. It remains the only independent town lottery of this type in the country. It's a Small Society lottery run like a raffle with cash prizes. Tickets (Golos) cost £1 each and are on sale throughout the town. At the end of each month we have a Draw in the centre of town and give away 17 cash prizes totalling £1000, top prize £500. All our remaining proceeds (at least 20% of our gross takings each month) go to local causes which anyone from Godalming can suggest. We have currently given away ~£27,000 to schools, day centres, sports clubs, the museum, arts and community projects and many others. The complete list of our contributions, with photos, is available on our website. Here's just a few: We've bought computers to help elderly people learn to surf the net, goals for a children's football team, a keyboard for Godalming Theatre Group, our Jubilee Beacon, patient's tables for Milford Hospital, equipment for an eco-pond at a local school, theatre trips for young carers, and Christmas hampers for disadvantaged families.
Unllike most charity lotteries, most of our sales are done personally rather than online. Just as important as raising the money for our causes is the community spirit Golo helps nurture. It truly is a 'win win' initiative. Shops which sell Golos benefit from increased footfall. Our £500 winner each month is presented with their cheque at the outlet where the winning ticket was sold which is great publicity. We invite sponsorshop which helps cover our printing costs and is a wonderful way for local businesses to raise their profile locally and is highly cost effective.
