As Northumbria Blood Bikes approach the start of their 96 hours of continuous service they began by spreading festive cheer to The Great North Children’s Hospital. It all started when one volunteer, Sean Jamieson, had an idea and spoke to other like minded members of the charity about a Blood Biking Santa run. After a bit of quick organisation a team was pulled together who then rallied donations of toys to deliver to children. Many of those unfortunately find themselves spending Christmas in hospital undergoing specialist care. Thanks to the generous donations from volunteers, their friends and family plus the support of local companies Northumbria Blood Bikes were able to make an early delivery to the youngsters on the wards.
