Bikes Against Bullies UK is a group set up for bikers, but not limited to them. Anyone can get involved! The aim is to create awareness surrounding bullying and offer support to victims and their families. Our children deserve to be safe, and to be empowered and to live their lives without fear.
If you or your child is a victim of bullying and you would like our support, please get in touch.
I thought I would do a blog post on Bikes against Bullies UK, in case you know someone who could need their help or a little boost in their life.
Recently I heard of Bikes against Bullies UK, as someone I know asked them to come and help build the confidence of a family member. This is a great idea and a fantastic thing to do plus the service is free, and everyone in this group is really wanting to help the person in a big way and show loads of support.
Bikes against Bullies UK is a Non Profit Organisation, what happens is you ask them to help support someone who is being bullied at school and they organise an event. This event is sent to all the many bikers that want to help, and are able to come on the specific day.
They all turn up on their motorbikes and this is a sight to see, I was lucky to see some arrive at a recent event and all you heard was revving and the bikes passing me. Once everyone turns up they make you a member, and give you a little goodie bag.
- photos above were taken from the recent event at time of post, they are taken from their Facebook page and do not show the person who was being bullied.
What this member status means is, anytime the person that is getting bullied can call and speak to someone from this organisation for some extra support. They can also request to be picked up from school by a few bikers, to show the bullies that they have bikers as friends.
This again I think is great, everyone is doing this because they care as most of us or even all of us have been bullied at some point in our life and know how it makes us feel.
Know someone that is getting bullied and would like a little confidence booster, then why not check out Bikes against Bullies UK. Its not just based in Glasgow, they have a few all over the UK and parts of the world so check them out on the website and Facebook page.
To all the group members I would like to say keep up the amazing job your doing!!!
