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.

Celebrating 90,000 Runs

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.

Sponsor of the Month.

Eric Wright Charitable Trust

The Eric Wright Group can trace its roots to the original construction company founded in Fleetwood in 1923 called Brown & Jackson. A number of transformations since then has resulted in the present structure. 100% of the shareholding in the Eric Wright Group is owned by the Eric Wright Charitable Trust, a charitable body that was established on principles of sustained employment and community regeneration. The Eric Wright Group helped with furniture when we set up the Bamber Bridge office and has also set up a continuous annual donation to us.

The support has been ongoing and sustained and it is not the first time this highly professional organisation with its strong community and philanthropic ethos has been our worthy Sponsor of the Month. In the depths of the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020 the ERic Wright Charitable Trust funded two new liveried motorcycles and have recently made two further generous and welcome donations to the organisation including one that went to pay for the insurance on our entire fleet of 14 liveried motorcyles and another that will fund a liveried bike.

  • APOLOGY TO MR PAUL PONTING

    Mr Ponting was an unpaid member of North West Blood Bikes Lancs & Lakes (‘NWBBLL’, ‘NWBB’, ’we’, ‘our’) and volunteered his time and motorcycle to this charity.

    On 20/8/2018, Paul Brooks, (who was at the time the charity chairman) posted an article about Mr Ponting on our website. The article was malicious, unlawful and should never have been published.

    We are aware this caused Mr Ponting significant alarm and distress as we left the article public on our website for 41 days, even after Mr Ponting had requested for it to be removed on several occasions.

  • Christmas Tree Collections

    Booking of collections is now closed

    For the past 12 years St John’s Hospice have collected Christmas trees in the local areas in return for a donation.

    “The whole event is quite good fun as we have many volunteers who go out in all weathers across our areas (From Garstang to Grasmere, Milnthorpe to Settle) they love the great Christmas Tree hunt.”

    Every year they give some of the proceeds to other charities. This year they have chosen 5 local charities to also benefit from this and once again North West Blood Bikes is one of them. We are delighted to have been selected by St John’s Hospice and hope that many of our followers and supporters will help them support us and the other worthy causes.

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."
