Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will continue to support the work we do.
We aim to provide a totally free, but professional, voluntary service, out of normal working hours for the transportation of Urgent and Emergency items, e.g. blood, platelets, samples, donor breast milk, patient notes, theatre equipment, in fact anything that can be carried by motorcycle, solely for the benefit of the publicly funded emergency services and the patients being treated by them, within the NHS Hospitals.
We will provide this service through the night, and 24 hours per day at weekends and Bank Holidays, to the best of our ability, enabling hospital funding to be better spent on patient care.
We started operating in May 2012 and as the counter shows the number of call outs we are completing is continuing to grow. Your help in doing this is always appreciated.Please Donate Here.
Many will recognise Eric Wright Construction as a familiar name on prestige construction sites. (During 2022/23 our West riders passed the company constructing a new bus station transport hub in Ormskirk several times per shift.) The Company history is less well known. The Eric Wright Group can trace its roots to the original construction company founded in Fleetwood in 1923 under the name Brown & Jackson. A number of transformations since then has resulted in the present structure. 100% of the shareholding in the Eric Wright Group is owned by the Eric Wright Charitable Trust, a charitable body that was established on principles of sustained employment and community regeneration. The Eric Wright Group has set up a continuous annual donation to us and provides the substantial funds needed to insure our fleet of specialist motorcycles across the whole North West Blood Bikes Lancs & Lakes area - South Lakes, Lancashire and beyond - wherever our NHS Trusts need us.

No this is not an indication of musical taste within the charity but excitement that Bolton couple, Matthew and Becky Nolan, will be running the 2024 Greater Manchester Half-marathon for NWBB. Our Central Area events and fundraising champion Becky Pow will be keeping us up to date with the progress on both fitness and fundraising. Recently they dropped in to be photographed with one of our liveried bikes.read full story

You can always read our Newsletters here to see what we are doing and who is supporting us. If you think you can help, come and join us. You don’t have to be able to ride a bike, although we constantly need riders, you can join us as a Controller, which basically means you stay at home and receive re-directed calls from any of our Hospitals. Then it’s a case of looking on the Duty sheets and sending a rider to do the run, or you can join us as a Fundraiser.
Whichever way you can help we will welcome you on board what we think is the best Blood Bike group in the Country. Just click the “Volunteer” button below."Volunteer.
