Wheels 4 Refugees returns to Velocity Cycles and LCSS Saturday June 10

Gently used bikes and scooters will be collected for refugee families

A Langley family is once again helping new refugee families in B.C. through their second Wheels 4 Refugees campaign.

This Saturday, June 10, siblings Van, Kade, Ty and Wes Dayton, along with their parents Bruce and Leah, and partner Austin Kragh, will be collecting gently used bikes and scooters at Velocity Cycles, 20167 96 Ave. in Walnut Grove, and Langley Community Services Society (LCSS), 5339 207 St. in Langley City.

After a successful first campaign in December 2015, when more than 100 bikes were collected and distributed to refugees, the group hopes to help even more families, and are also planning a fundraising dodgeball competition sometime next year.

Those who would like to contribute can drop off bikes and scooters between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at either location. Velocity has already collected a number of bikes, and will have mechanics on-site at their store to help with repairs, if needed.
