Derbyshire Blood Bikes

Charity description

Thank you for visiting our page on My Donate.

Derbyshire Blood Bikes is a charity based in Derbyshire. Our aim is to help save the NHS money, helping them save lives. We do this by providing a FREE medical courier service to our local NHS hospitals and medical facilities. We can transport blood and blood products, biological samples, medication, equipment and patient records. We also collect donated breast milk from nursing mothers and deliver to the NHS Milk Bank, when it is then sent to neo-natal unit across the UK for premature or poorly new born babies.

All of our riders, fundraisers and committee members are volunteers, giving their time to provide this vital support service for the NHS in Derbyshire. We are one of the few blood bike groups that operates 24hours every day of the year.

Please donate to support our charity work. We receive no support from the government and raise all our funds through events, sponsorship and collections. The money enables us to operate a small fleet of motorcycles and cars for use when the weather makes motorcycling unsafe. The cost of insurances, fuel and servicing, along with other revenue costs, now mean we have to raise in excess of £18,000 to operate. As our service has become more widely used across the local health sector, these costs are rising. We aspire to provide a highly professional service and to support this we have an ambitious programme replace our ageing motorcycles, to which some of our funding will be directed.
