PEDAL POWER IS the driving force behind the latest idea from Positive Steps. The Oldham-based charity is collecting old bicycles, which are refurbished and donated to families in need. The 180 staff running its operations across Rochdale, Tameside and Oldham believe the charity has a strong social conscience (79%, ranked 36th among small organisations) and recognise that their managers care for them as individuals (also 79%). www.positive-steps.org.uk
