Second Chance is an independent charity shop on St John’s Way, Archway, they are run by the Islington and Camden Mission Circuit part of the Methodist Church in London.
Barry Brundage, the manager of the store, was one of the early adopters of the ZEN programme. Barry recognised that trialling a ZEN cargo bike would allow the store to offer a new service to his customers whilst simultaneously improving Second Chance's sustainability credentials.
“The chance to trial a cargo bicycle has helped us to offer local deliveries of purchases from the store to the customers and also provide collection of donations from the local area. The deliveries generate zero emissions, helping us operate sustainably and spread the message of improving air quality in the area.” - Barry Brundage, Manager Second Chance
These deliveries and collections are particularly helpful for the elderly and disabled residents of Archway who might struggle to lift and transport heavy loads.
