We're still collecting donations

On the 27th May 2020 we'd raised £1,865 with 26 supporters in 42 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

On the 10th April, we were approached by a local hospital in Merseyside that requested help for bikes for their staff that don’t drive. Over the next 6 weeks we aim to distribute over 100 of our 'Hire Bike Fleet’ cycles to NHS staff.

Why are we crowdfunding?

Across Merseyside we know there are 50,000+ hospital staff and volunteers, many of whom don’t have access to public transport currently. We anticipate all our fleet of hire bikes being distributed throughout April with a need for more bikes throughout May.

The ‘Bikes for NHS’ campaign will see HYPE Urban Bikes commit all their hire bikes during this period to NHS staff and request further support through donations through our crowdfund page and through donated bikes.

Please support our #BikesforNHS campaign.

We expect the take up of our offer of bikes to the NHS to be positive and far beyond our expectations...but we want to do more so we are calling on the Merseyside community & our wider community to get involved where they can and contribute towards the cost of more bikes beyond our 100.

Any support no matter how small (or large) will make a huge difference to us being able to support the NHS staff. Thank you. 

*Any additional money raised beyond the target will be donated to NHS Charitable trusts (

Crowdfunder is making it 100% free for community and charity crowdfunding projects during the coronavirus crisis. The Covid-19 epidemic could affect millions of people in the next few weeks.

These are unprecedented times but together, we are stronger, and the response is coming from communities across the country.

Volunteer groups are springing up to tackle the logistical problems faced in our communities – but they need urgent support. That's where we come in.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
