Joss Cox, social enterprise manager at DENS: “We are passionate about supporting our community in any way we can, whether that be providing training for our clients who have experienced homelessness, servicing a bike to make it safe or finding someone an affordable bike to get to work or school.”

She added: “Going forward, we are happy to offer Ukrainian refugees 50% off any bike at the Bike Project."

The public can visit the bike shop at 1 Rossgate, Gadebridge, Hemel Hempstead Tuesday to Friday every week.
