  • Leyland Festival 16th June 2018 – Forgot to pack the ark!

    Leyland Festival 16th June 2018 – Forgot to pack the ark!

    After weeks of glorious sunshine we should have known better than to bring out the central area gazebo. Our third major event of the year and our third wet one! Despite the weather we had a fabulous time and had an excellent attendance of members from all areas. Along with some new faces, we had the pleasure of the lovely Gary Warn who is once again an active member in North West Blood Bikes proving that once you join this amazing group there is just no escape!

    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!

    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!

Chorley ASDA store is no exception to this and on Saturday 14th April we were privileged to be presented with a cheque for £500.

  • Chorley Yamaha Open Day - 7th April 2018

    Chorley Yamaha Open Day - 7th April 2018

    For the second year in a row this event has been an incredibly wet one but we didn’t let the rain dampen our spirits.

    We had the lovely Marion to attract people over and have a chance to sit on a liveried blood bike. (thanks Simon for entrusting her to us), a large selection of merchandise and of course as has become a tradition a selection of cakes to raise money through donations. We had lots of enquiries and hopefully these will result in new members of the charity plus a few future events.

    Euxton Library - Talk

    Amanda Mason writes: We were recently contacted by Kath Deakin from Euxton Village Library asking if we would be available at 10.30 last Thursday morning. Now that I am back at work during the week I usually cannot commit to daytime weekday events however I had in fact booked some Annual Leave so was actually available. Ironically I now work in Euxton so it did feel like I was heading to work that morning although a little later than normal.
