Our newest addition to the fleet

Today EGGER (UK) Limited presented us with a new, fully serviced Yamaha motor bike and two years’ worth of fuel. Employees at the manufacturing company voted to support us and have spent the last two years raising funds to help. Throughout 2016 and 2017 a range of events have taken place from pub quizzes, fishing and golfing competitions, raffles and for the more adventurous regional and national challenges. We are extremely grateful for all the hard work the EGGER employees have undertaken to raise the funds. And, in recognition of this we have named the bike after the company.

In a week that has seen the first snow fall across the North East we have seen our team reach another milestone in our charity’s history. Our volunteers have completed 25,000 jobs for the NHS since we went live on 03/02/14.

Thanks to the dedication of our committed volunteers and our supporters we are able to continue to #makeadifference.


Keep our wheels turning by collecting Wish Tokens

We recently announced that we have been accepted in The Evening Chronicle's Wish Token campaign again for the second year. The first of the tokens will be issued in the paper today, Wednesday 11th October 2017, through until Saturday 6th January 2018.

This is where we need you because the more tokens we collect the larger the share of the money we will receive. The money we receive will go towards keeping our wheels turning to save lives across the North East.


Great North Run Cheering Point

Join us at our Great North Run Cheering Point. We will have our trailer outside South Tyneside Hospital, opposite the Fire Station, on The A1300 John Reid Road. This is around the 10mile mark of the 13.1mile course. (Please note that the road is closed from 9.45am to 4pm).

This year we have 27 NBB runners joined by 10 NABB runners as one team #BloodBikesGNR 

Anybody wishing to join in supporting runners and helping to spot our team are welcome to join us!

Time to follow the yellow brick road

We're off to see the Wizard

The wonderful Wizard of Oz

We hear he is a whiz of a wiz

If ever a wiz there was

If ever, oh ever a wiz there was

The Wizard of Oz is one because

Because, because, because, because, because

Because of the wonderful Newcastle Musical Theatre Company (NMTC).

(Just be glad you couldn’t hear me singing that as I typed it. I definitely wouldn't make it into their show – Kirsty)
