  • The Long Way Down

    On Sunday 7th May 2017 two friends, Ian Woodburn and Calum Wilcock, are riding non-stop (apart for essential comfort breaks) from John O’ Groats to Lands Ends to raise funds for North West Blood Bikes Lancs and Lakes. As both riders work for the NHS at The Royal Lancaster Infirmary they decided this would be a great charity to sponsor.

    ‘Crafty Ladies’ help keep the wheels turning

    A group from Penwortham have been raising money for local charity North West Blood Bikes – Lancs & Lakes.

    The 13 members of Crafty Ladies from Tuson House who meet weekly, nominated the charity as their charity of choice for 2016. Money was raised by holding a cabaret night, Christmas raffle and a table top sale. The ladies also sold items that they had knitted and crocheted like Easter bunnies, Halloween spiders and Christmas reindeers along with other items throughout the year.

  • Head Shave

    Head Shave

    We recently received money from a sponsored head shave****.

    The money was raised by Julie, Amanda and Nicola three Sedbergh friends who decided to shave their heads for charity – quite a sacrifice to make when you have a full head of hair. They organised an evening of entertainment, food and music at which they all went under the scissors for charity. They expected to raise a few hundred pounds and were pleasantly surprised when they totalled a massive £4800 which they decided to split between NWBB-LL, Great North Air Ambulance and St. Johns Hospice.

    As a result Bob Bryne, Mike Wilkinson and Steve Dunstan were invited to a presentation held at The Bath House in Sedbergh where they received a cheque for a massive £1628.30. After the presentation they retired for coffee and cakes and had the opportunity to speak with the three “victims” as well as the representatives from the other charities. As you can see from the photo the three friends were still sporting short haircuts and massive smiles.

    Carl Fogarty

    Saturday 27th December 2014, Shorrocks Motorcycles held a charity bash at the New Hall Tavern at Samlesbury to raise money for North West Blood Bikes Lancs & Lakes. The bash was a tremendous success, with the pub being so full you had to go outside to breath. Of course one reason was because Carl Fogarty promised he would turn up, and sure enough he did.
