Blood Biking Santa Run

Kirsty Lawrence's picture

As Northumbria Blood Bikes approach the start of their 96 hours of continuous service they began by spreading festive cheer to The Great North Children’s Hospital. It all started when one volunteer, Sean Jamieson, had an idea and spoke to other like minded members of the charity about a Blood Biking Santa run. After a bit of quick organisation a team was pulled together who then rallied donations of toys to deliver to children. Many of those unfortunately find themselves spending Christmas in hospital undergoing specialist care.

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.

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.
