As Northumbria Blood Bikes approach the start of 252 hours of service, with just over a week until the big day, the volunteers have began by spreading festive cheer to children in our North East Hospitals. It all started last year with the first Northumbria Blood Biking Santa run. After months of organisation the team rallied donations of gifts and toys to deliver to children. Many of those children unfortunately find themselves spending Christmas in hospital undergoing specialist care. Thanks to the generous donations from volunteers, their friends, family, neighbours, their employers plus the support of other local companies Northumbria Blood Bikes were able to make an early delivery to the youngsters on the wards at three of our local hospitals.
