Charity/Sponsorship Requests

As much as we'd like to help everyone who contacts us, believe it or not we receive an average of five requests for support each day. Unfortunately, it's just not possible for us to help everyone, so at Halfords we made the decision to make a big difference to one charity and we direct our focus there. Our current charity partner is the NSPCC. We also have a long-term partnership with ReCycle, a UK charity that sends unwanted cycles to Africa.

In addition, this year over 10,000 children have attended a free Kids Bike Club at our stores to learn the basics of cycle maintenance. We are also supporting the Scout Association, helping Cubs towards their cycle badge.

We would like to wish you every success with your fundraising.
