Photo: TROELS SOMMERVILLE Bike appeal hits a snag By TROELS SOMMERVILLE A kind gesture has turned into a plea for help. Diana Swarbrick from Refugees as Survivors New Zealand has been flooded with offers of bicycles for her bike recycling service. The problem is she has nowhere to store them nor any means of picking them up. It all started when inner-city bike shop owner Tom White contacted Ms Swarbrick to donate six bikes to refugees. The story was picked up by the Western Leader’s sister paper Central Leader and other papers in the Sub- urban Newspapers group and it went ‘‘viral’’, Ms Swarbrick says. Her co-worker Pris- cilla Dawson was storing the bikes at her house but that’s not an option anymore. ‘‘If I take another bike home my husband will divorce me,’’ Ms Dawson says. The idea behind the project is that members of the public donate their old bikes to be given to refugees. ‘‘They come here with one suitcase. They’re lucky if they have jandals,’’ Ms Swarbrick says. The first bike off the production line went to 15-year-old San Htike Aung. Born in the jungles of Burma, San has not had the chance to ride a bike since he was a child. He and his family fled government oppression in their homeland and now live in Otahuhu. Now he rides his bike almost everyday. ‘‘When you come to a new country and you don’t speak the language it can be very difficult even catching the bus,’’ Ms Swarbrick says. She’d like to continue to grow the project but is looking for someone to help transport, store and fix the bikes. Email diana@ras nz. co.nz to donate a bike or offer your help.
