Evans - Trade in your old bike to receive money off a new bike plus your old bike will be donated to charity

This is more about the charity than the “deal”, but Evans is running its bike trade-in scheme again. They take any bike, no matter the condition, and provide money off a new bike.

What happens to the old bike:
Recycle Your Cycle works with prison students to repair and refurbish old bicycles which have been donated by members of the public and from a range of organisations. Around 90% of all donated bicycles are refurbished and what cannot be used for parts are then disposed of under WEEE regulations.

Another source of donations comes from universities where students often leave their bicycles at the end of their courses and this scheme provides the perfect way to recycle them.

The refurbished bicycles are then sold back through Hospice UK’s members enabling them to raise funds to support more than 200 local hospices across the UK which provide care to approximately 200,000 people with terminal and life-limiting conditions every year, as well as providing support to their families, carers and friends. Hospice UK’s work helps ensure that hospice doctors, nurses and volunteers have the training, funding and resources they need to provide the very best end of life care.

"How much will I get for my bike?

The amount you save depends on the price of your new bike. The table above has all the details."

I can't find the table they mention

Heat, just for raising funds for hospices.

Not really. They've got to spend money on another bike.
"prison students"? Is this what happens when you can't pay off your student loans?
Not a deal. Only works on full price bikes. Would make more sense to buy a discounted bike in a end-of-season sale and just donate your old bike to charity. Or even better sell it and donate the money to a charity of your choice.
Just a thought.

Doesn't say it excludes discounted bikes just ex-display or ex-demo bikes so in theory should still work for boxed bikes from 2017 range or earlier and any bikes just discounted.
