Why I volunteer…

“I first heard about Northumbria Blood Bikes on Facebook. I decided join as a volunteer as my son had been treated for Leukaemia and had lots of blood transfusions, and I wanted to say ‘Thank You’ in a small way. I had originally joined as a fundraiser and now I help the charity’s Secretary with admin.

There are lots of events going on especially during the summer; it's easy to fit in with your day to day life. The best thing I've experienced since joining is the new friends I've made and supporting all the team’s runners in the Great North Run.

I have the say my most memorable moments are when you meet someone who has been helped directly by our volunteers.

If anyone is thinking of joining us at Northumbria Blood Bikes I would say… go for it!

My name is Heather Amar and that’s why I volunteer for Northumbria Blood Bikes.”
