AFC Bournemouth have made a donation to the Community Sports Trust’s Premier League Inspires project, helping out local schools and their pupils.
Unused bikes that previously belonged to the first team have been donated back into the local community, with different schools using them in different ways.
Blanford School will be giving theirs to students as rewards towards the end of the academic year, while Iford Academy will be handing them out to pupils to help them get to school.
Students from Iford, which is an alternate provision school, carried out maintenance checks to enhance their learning and look forward to using them in the coming weeks.
Oak Academy and Magna School have also benefitted from the unused bikes and will distribute accordingly before the end of the term.
Following the donation, Head of Community Steve Cuss shared his delight at being able to help with the Premier League Inspires project.
“We are very grateful for the donations of bikes, which have gone to support pupils as part of the Premier League Inspires project.
“With many families facing harder times right now, the young people who receive the bikes, whether as a reward or for use to get to school, will hopefully enjoy riding them and getting around as well as improving their physical health.”
