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.

Why I volunteer…

“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.

Why I volunteer...

“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.
