A quote from Helen Keller perfectly describes how the work of our volunteers’ enables our charity to operate: “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

As #VolunteersWeek comes to an end we would like to thank all of our dedicated volunteers, and their families, as without them we would be nothing.

Why I volunteer…

Before Feb, 2017, I had never heard of Northumbria Blood Bikes, but I saw one of their vehicles parked on Ratcliffe Road in our village. So I asked the rider, Sam Quigley, what they did. He gave a brief résumé of their purpose and I was intrigued; mostly by the fact that they not only transport blood, but medical notes, samples, medical equipment and so much more.

Why I volunteer...

“I found out about the charity through Northumbria Advanced Motorcycles and joined in April 2016 as a rider and driver.

It can be tricky to fit volunteering into my daily life with 3 children under 10 and a busy professional life; however Northumbria Blood Bikes have a variety of shifts and roles available so there is always something that will fit with your work and family commitments.

Why I volunteer…

“I heard about Northumbria Blood Bikes after I'd seen the bikes and cars at hospitals like the RVI. I choose to join at the end of last year as I was looking for a way to give back that was something a little different. I'm a driver but I sometimes help at fundraising events as well, standing with a change bucket!

I work shifts so volunteering for Northumbria Blood Bikes fits in around my work, although some months are better than others for it!
