    Goosnargh and Whittingham Women’s Institute

    Within Central Lancs area lies the beautiful rural village of Goosnargh, a village that our riders pass through on most days. It is also the home of the Goosnargh and Whittingham Women’s Institute who meet in the village hall, which is where Mike Hockney and I caught up with them and delivered a talk on what we do at North West Blood Bikes and how this benefits their community.

    THE SHOW MUST GO ON IN COPPULL WITH A RAINBOW TO BOOT!

    On Tuesday evening I was heading to my scheduled Blood Bike talk with a small degree of trepidation after the sudden loss of one of our colleagues Russ Curwen only 3 days before. However as I arrived with Colm Carton our Central Area Manager the welcome we received from Dot and the rest of the ladies of Spendmore Lane Friendship Hour diminished any concerns within seconds. I don’t believe Colm had chance to even get off his bike before getting a great big hug!

  • Controllers. Who are they?

    One of the many volunteer roles within North West Blood Bikes is that of controller. Also known as call takers, dispatchers or coordinators, the role of controller is essential for ensuring calls are answered quickly and the item is delivered efficiently to its destination. There is much more for the 46 members to do than just answering the phone.
