Emergency Supplies

Transported out of hours to save lives

Welcome to

North West Blood Bikes Lancashire and Lakes

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you will continue to support the work we do.

Our mission

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.

Cormar Carpets

Cormar Carpets have been making quality carpets at two mills in our region area since 1956. Their high quality products provide “the finishing touch to homes across the UK”. Cormar Carpets’ quality is renowned and has been award-winning continuously in the industry since 2008. In 2023 they were voted “Best Carpet Manufaturer” by readers of Interiors Monthly

As well as a dedication to high quality products that satisfy the needs and expectations of customers, the management and staff of Cormar Carpets also extend quality and care in supporting local charities. Employees nominate the charities that their regular give-as-you-earn contributions could be given to which is then boosted by financial contributions from the company.

In January 2024 NWBB Lancs & Lakes were delighted to be chosen as recipients of this thoughtful and generous financial support.

Want to help and join us?

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."
