Gladstone Sunrise Rotarians are about to start turning old bikes into new wheelchairs.

In 18 years rotary clubs have sent 7036 wheelchairs fashioned from bikes to developing nations.

But this is a first for Gladstone Sunrise Rotary who, thanks to the council, already have a large collection of bikes to start work on.

Instead of going into landfill, bikes collected at council dumps will now be given to Sunrise.

Once they are up and running, we'll let you know how you can help.
