The Margaret Carey Foundation is a charity working in Bradford to advance the education of young ex-offenders by providing vocational training. Founded in 2010, the project has been teaching people how to refurbish bicycles and wheelchairs. These are either sold in store to raise funds for the charity or donated to various people in need.
The Hays Travel Foundation voted in favour of a £5,000 grant which allowed the charity to continue delivering their project. Since receiving our funding, the Margaret Carey Foundation has been working hard to continue helping people rehabilitate their lives and grow the organisation.
The charity has seen a positive development, being able to employ two part time staff members and is currently working on establishing a workshop approved by City and Guilds, which would allow the MCF to deliver nationally recognised L2 bike mechanic qualifications.
We are happy we could help and look forward to the next update from the charity!Click here for more
