  • RIDER AND DRIVER ID CARDS – VALIDITY EXTENDED TO 2021

    Every year at North West Blood Bikes Lancs and Lakes we revalidate all our members to ensure that they understand and agree to comply with the risk assessments, rules and procedures necessary for us to provide the level of volunteer service that has been agreed with our NHS customers. After that revalidation declaration we normally issue members with a new photo-identity card valid for 12 months. This year the Covid19 situation has disrupted the process of producing and distributing new photo-identity cards. So this year our Membership Team have carried out the revalidation process and our Committee have confirmed those who have completed the declaration have had their authorisation extended to 31 May 2021.

  • Sainsbury's Bamber Bridge & Morecambe

    Both the stores of Sainsbury’s at Bamber Bridge and Morecambe have been collecting for us over the past 12 months and it is coming to a close. The staff at both stores have been great, but we mustn’t forget the customers who have helped us by donating. All the money collected helps us keep our fleet of emergency bikes on the road and our volunteers in fuel.
