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 lament the passing of the corner shop as retail has become larger and more centralised.
Here at NWBB HQ in Bamber Bridge we have the best of both worlds. Our “corner shop” just across the road is the wonderful Sainsbury’s Bamber bridge store. The Manager Matt Hadwin, Community supporter Lindsay Till and all the staff regularly welcome NWBB to fundraising opportunities at the door where we can collect funds and share our mission to support the local NHS with their customers. New riders and controllers also come forward as a result of meeting us in person. It is always an enjoyable event and we know that the store also makes a very generous top-up to the monies raised from their community funds. We have been delighted to receive the most recent £5250 in March 2022 and shout an enormous THANK YOU! to the Management, Staff and Customers who have made this possible.

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.
