Most memorable moment as a member of blood bikes? I was at an event in Barrow and a member of the public came up to the NWBB stand and shook my hand. He then went onto say “thank-you for helping to save my sons life”. He had seen a blood bike outside the hospital, where his young son was receiving emergency treatment. He assumed in seeing the blood bike outside, it had delivered the emergency blood for his son !
