Bike sale helps Christmas dreams come true

There is nothing more iconic around Christmastime than a child finding a bike under the tree.

There is nothing more iconic around Christmastime than a child finding a bike under the tree.

The Penticton and District Society for Community Living (PDSCL) is hoping to make that dream come true for Penticton kids with a 50 per cent off sale at their bike shop at 180 Industrial Ave. W. for one day on Friday, Dec. 16.

“Nothing like a nice, shiny bike underneath the tree at this time of year so we invite family to come down and have a look and see what we’ve got,” said Tony Laing, PDSCL executive director.

Paul Creasey, PDSCL bike shop supervisor brought up the idea, noticing PDSCL had a good collection of children’s bikes during the holiday season.

“Close to Christmas time we thought it would be a good idea to give back to the community,” Laing said.

Prices are dependent on bike size and condition. Laing said there would be something for everyone, starting as low as $10.

Unclaimed lost bikes are refurbished at the PDSCL bike shop, who employ those with disabilities to get the bikes shipshape.

The PDSCL bike shop is open most weekdays with a selection of bikes all year round. Bikes that are lost or recovered by police are sent to PDSCL as well, where they are held for 90 days. Those seeking their lost bikes can come and file a report.

Proceeds from the sales directly support the PDSCL, who have been serving people with disabilities and their families in the community since 1958.
