Charity/Sponsorship Requests

As much as we'd like to help everyone who contacts us, 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 all of our focus there.

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

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