Glasgow Eco Trust is raising funds to replace our much loved Big Green Van which unfortunately has driven its last mile!

Having access to a van or similar is crucial to help us to deliver our range of services and activities. We have a lot of equipment which we use to deliver our services. We use the van to:

  • pick up donations of unwanted bikes and deliver refurbished bikes to customers
  • take our fleet bikes to schools and nurseries for Play Together on Pedals sessions and Bikeability sessions
  • take our cycle skills course and equipment to schools and community events
  • take scrap metal for recycling
  • take our pedal powered smoothies to community events
  • take our litter picking and clean up equipment out and about
  • take other equipment to events
  • assist other organisations, groups and people in the local community if they need a van

We are currently working with some consultants to look at our van requirements and the options for buying new, buying second hand, short time hire or longer term leasing and what fuel options might be available to us. We are also looking at cargo bikes as well.

Once we have identified a suitable solution we will be applying to various funds and having some match funding secured will be a fantastic help!

Any support you can provide us would be very much appreciated!

Every donation, both large and small makes a huge difference to the people and communities we support and it couldn't be easier to do. Please make a single donation today using a debit or credit card.  It's quick, easy, secure and you'll be making a difference today.
