A CITY clothing alterations firm has launched a new bike-based delivery service.

The Zip Yard is getting on its bike to launch a new delivery service.

Running throughout July and August, the pilot scheme covers the W1 to W5 postcodes and all proceeds will be donated to Worcester Community Trust.

Store owner Paul Meredith said: “Repairing and altering clothes extends their life and prevents them being sent to landfill so it makes perfect sense to help the planet further by cutting down on the number of short car journeys we make to deliver items to customers or for them to collect from us.”

Deliveries, which will be made on the store’s new branded bike, cost £3.50 and will help to support Worcester Community Trust’s health and wellbeing initiatives.
