Prisoners restore 400 bikes for children in care

Auckland prisoners involved in a recycling workshop have restored and donated more than 400 bikes to children in care.

This morning they donated another 50 second-hand bikes to children from Oranga Tamariki.

So far bikes have gone to support children from organisations like Women's Refuge, the Bike Kitchen and the New Zealand Prison Fellowship.

During the workshops at Auckland Prison, inmates learn a range of practical skills to help them find employment on their release.
