RCC awarded Community Fund Grant for BikeRegister Membership Plus kits


The Thames Valley Police Community Fund supports voluntary and community groups that help to prevent crime and keep communities safe.

Money for the Community Fund is created from the proceeds from the sale of items seized from criminals that cannot be returned to their rightful owners.

On 10 October, Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley Matthew Barber, and Chief Constable Jason Hogg, awarded voluntary and community organisations £199,548 in the second round of this year’s Community Fund. And we are delighted to announce that RCC is one of the successful recipients.

RCC has received funding to purchase 400 BikeRegister Membership Plus Kits.

We will be organising free Bike Marking events in the next few months where a highly durable tamper resistant QR Code label is attached to your bike to give it a unique BikeRegister ID.

The RCC Membership will be informed of these events, and these will be published on our website and Facebook page.

We’re hoping these kits will both deter bike thieves and help recover bikes and re-unite them with their owners.

If you are interested in hosting a joint event, please email
