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.
Sorrymate.com - “Born bikers, learnt to be lawyers”. These specialist motorcycle accident solicitors help bikers get the support and compensation they need if involved in an accident. (The name comes from the oft heard “Sorry, mate. I didn’t see you.”) They have been exploring for some time how best to offer additional help NWBB and its members.
They have offered a partnership giving:-
· A substantial discount to any of our members if they are unfortunately in need of their services.
· To donate £200 to North West Blood Bikes for every referral from the public originating from us which leads to a new customer engagement.
Our part of this is to make Sorrymate information leaflets available at our public events. The leaflets have our own code NWBB on them. When anyone contacts Sorrymate and and employs their services, not only will the individual will receive a discount but North West Blood Bikes will receive £200.
Here are two personal testimonies from our own members who have been involved in accidents
I used Sorrymate in the past due to being involved in a non fault accident in 2018, the personal service they gave me was excellent and I personally recommend them. BM
I am using Sorrymate. I have nothing but praise for Fergus Delgarno who has taken personal control of my case. His dedication is exemplary. To date I have had a floor to floor lift installed, a wet room converted from an en-suite, carers coming for 2 hours 4 times per week, the weekly use of a wheelchair taxi should I need it. All this has been provided by the relevant insurance company. Fergus appointed a Case Manager to take charge of my case and I cannot praise Sorrymate enough.BML
More information about Sorrymate and their services is available on their website. Remember to use code NWBB if you or someone you are in contact with is unfortunate enough to need to use their services.
Thank you Sorrymate.

Our Central Area events and fundraising champion Becky Pow will be keeping us up to date with the progress on both fitness and fundraising. Recently they dropped in to be photographed with one of our liveried bikes.read full story

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.
