Andrew Tawn, Instructional Officer at the prison said: “The bikes have been restored by CHAINS (Change, Help and Advance in New Skills), which enables prisoners to take part in purposeful activity and encourages and promotes better job prospects upon release.”

The CHAINS workshop is supported by the Margaret Carey Foundation, which supplies bikes and distributes them to families  and organisations, where they are needed most.

CHAINs provided HDT with 5 BMX bikes, which will be gifted to children in Irlam and Cadishead who don’t already have a bike.
