Why I volunteer…

“I first heard about Blood Bikes from a television program that was re-run about a blood bike group in the south of the country. I have been involved with the charity since January 2016, gaining my advanced car and bike qualifications in February & March respectively. I joined as I remember thinking during the television program that was on that it must be very rewarding to give your time to such a worthy cause and I was right! I am a Rider, Driver, Coordinator, Speaker and I also shadow new members if requested to settle them into their first shift.

“I first heard about Northumbria Blood Bikes when I was looking to link up with Northumbria Advanced Motorcyclists, as we had just moved back into the area after living in North Wales for the past 20yrs. I saw the link between them and NBB and as I was due to retire I thought 'that would be worth volunteering for. That was in January 2016.

“I joined Northumbria Blood Bikes as a volunteer rider in 2015; after I found out about the charity when they were fundraising at Sainsbury’s in Durham. I love riding, and thought this was a good way to combine that with giving something back. Other than driving I’ve done every aspect of our roles. I try to do a bit of everything for the charity, time permitting, and hope to do my advanced driving at some point to get the full toolset.

“I heard about Northumbria Blood Bikes via their website. I had previously been looking into assisting another group (SERV OBN) before taking up a new job in Northumberland. I saw it as an opportunity to do something to help in the community, while indulging my passion for riding motorbikes!

I’m a rider at the moment, although I have also completed coordinator training in the past.  I also assist with fundraising where I can (and where I’m not needed for an operational shift).

“I can't remember how I first heard about Northumbria Blood Bikes. I had been trying to get involved with the service for quite a while, (feeling sure that the North East must have something similar to other areas), before eventually stumbling upon Northumbria Blood Bikes. I must have been using the wrong search engine.
