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 can also collect donated breast milk from nursing mothers and deliver to the NHS Milk Bank, when it is then used in neo-natal unit across the UK in the treatment of premature or poorly new born babies.

All of our riders, fundraisers and committee members are volunteers and give 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 week.

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 a car 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 well in excess of £15,000 to simply operate. As our service has become more widely used across the local health sector, these costs have risen. We also have an ambition to replace some of our ageing motorcycles but this needs even more public donations.
