Help us buy a life-changing exercise bike

Everyone should have the chance to exercise - regardless of disability

We need your help to purchase a life-changing exercise bike for people with learning disabilities. 

We need £6,000 to purchase a Thera Bike, an assistive bike for people with disabilities which allows them to exercise from a chair or wheelchair with motorised assistance, irrespective of their ability or limited movement.

Help us buy a life-changing bike by donating below.

Only 16.8%

of people with a learning disability play sport at least once a week – compared with 39.9% of the general population

(Sport England, 2018)

64%

of UK sports clubs lack appropriate equipment for people with a disability

(Mencap, 2019)

The bike itself brand new costs £6,000. It is expensive, but the higher spec model (Tigo 502) allows people to play games depending on the length and speed at which they’re cycling, and also interact with each other. For example, in the football game they can score a goal, which make exercising more fun and rewarding!

Without your generosity we simply won’t be able to hit our target. People are still excited from using the bike in the Summer and are keen to continue reaping the benefits. We would promise to keep you updated on whether we hit our target and post you an update from the people using the bike.
