Crowdfunder to help robbed community bike shop in SE5

Posted on
  • A really great local community bike workspace/shop in Camberwell got burgled a couple of nights back. Most of their essential tools are gone (and you might have also seen Henry post about one of the bikes that got nicked on the stolen bikes thread: https://www.lfgss.com/comments/15639071/­). This obviously is going to make keeping their important work going in an already shitty time pretty challenging.

    They've just set up a crowdfunder to replace what they've lost, which is here: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-us-repla­ce-items-stolen-in-a-burglary/. Hoping anyone local or just able to spare a few quid on here will be able to chip in.

    Imagine they'll also appreciate any essential tools people have hanging around – if you want to give them a shout they're @eldrecycles on instagram. Cheers!

  • Up to 395 of 1500 goal after a few days, so while to go yet – hope it's alright for me to give this a bump. A fiver from folks here and there (or just a share tbh) would help. Thanks https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-us-repla­ce-items-stolen-in-a-burglary

  • Cheers Merlin,

    Currently the most annoying and vital tools that have gone missing are a complete set of Park Tool Allen keys (3mm-8mm), set of Park Tool spanners (6mm-17mm, although for whatever reason they didn't want the 7mm), Park Tool cable cutters, a Park Tool Hammer, 2 Park Tool adjustable spanners- There is more but I need to make a proper inventory.

    Amazing how annoying it is to try and do anything when you don't have the right kit.

    There is also a Makita cordless drill, battery and charger, and site radio that the blighters have nabbed. but these are less commonly used so not so vital.
