I have a couple of fold up bicycles to get rid off. They will need a service but otherwise there is nothing wrong with them.

Does anyone know any charities that might want them and is willing to collect them? I emailed Recycle a couple of months ago and got nothing but ignorance back so there is no point in suggesting them im afraid.

I'm not aware of any others I'm afraid. There used to be the Bike Project in Burngreave Cemetery Chapel but they moved out a good while ago, don't know if they went somewhere else. When I donated an old bike to Recycle it was fine and they were very grateful and their Bike Kitchen is also very good so I don't know what happened there.

Sell them on ebay, new folding cycles aren't cheap so you can probably get a bit for them. You can always donate the money to charity if you wish.

How about Assist? Looks like they'll collect them too.

Check first, I haven't seen anyone fixing bikes in the chapel for ages.
