So we’ve carefully defined our CSR along the following principles:
So we’ll continue to review and grow our policies, learning lessons and building on success along the way. What won’t change are our commitments to:
We work with prisoners in Onley Prison and Drake Hall Prison, training them to become professional cycle mechanics. Prisoners get to learn by working on bicycles handed in at participating stores and the refurbished bikes, along with new helmets, are donated to schools in disadvantaged areas.

1000s of bikes from the UK are transforming lives in Africa…
Since 2013, we’ve been working with Re-Cycle to redress the balance between millions of bikes being thrown away or left to rust in sheds across the UK, and the millions of people in Africa have to walk for hours each day, often carrying heavy loads.
We also help Re-Cycle to raise vital funds and awareness across the UK and collect thousands of bikes through regular trade-in events, whilst Re-Cycle helps Halfords to connect with and inspire local communities, reduce bike waste and make a real impact through the power of bikes.
