Bike Sale and Spring Yard Clean up, 30 April 2023
Thank you so much for supporting Hopewell's "Anything on Wheels" Sale! We raised over $2100 and helped bring safe wheels to many folks in the neighbourhood. We especially want to thank our incredible volunteers who donated valuable weekend hours to make this bi-annual sale happen.
We were also fortunate to offer bike tune-ups, thanks to our amazing bike tuner-uppers - Sean, Colin, Owen, Matt, Nina, Sam, and Andrew’s team from 
Tall Tree Cycles - who provided our community with their exceptional bike expertise! 
To keep our volunteers hydrated, 
Happy Goat Coffee 
donated coffee and fixings. And to top the weekend off, Art, 
from the City of Ottawa, came to share his wisdom about bike safety! All in all, the weekend was a resounding success! - Thanks Rebekka and Carson for a great event!
