It’s a great opportunity to tell the story of how WE, have supported NHS frontline services, and for YOU to have the opportunity to actually support us.
Since the 23 of March, we’ve responded to more than 450 urgent call-outs to help hospitals and hospices across Yorkshire.
During the Coronavirus outbreak we responded by becoming a 24/7 service.
We continue to move Blood sample specimens for urgent testing between hospitals Out-of-hours; but we have evolved and adapted to new ways of working to minimise the risk of infection to patients. Now on a daily basis we collect routine phlebotomy testing, from temporary drive-through testing sites.
We’re taking laptop computers to on-call Doctors working remotely.
We’re moving medical records and resources.
We’re delivering controlled drugs and pharmacy items for shielding palliative care patients as part of the Hospice At Home initiative.
Whilst still joining other blood bike groups by participating in urgent and emergency national relays and we continue to transport donated breast milk to neonatal special care baby units.
Never before have we seen the potential for our healthcare systems to be under so much pressure.
But whilst we have gone from strength to strength in meeting the requests for our help from the clinical staff – its in fundraising where we now need your urgent contribution.
Like many charities, without our public appearances, our routine fundraising has been restricted .No, biker gatherings, no public events, no sporting sponsorship – at a time when we’ve never been busier – financially, things have never been bleaker….
Do you believe in the: “free of charge to the NHS”, work that we do?
If we didn’t do it – the NHS would have to pay for commercial private hire and courier costs.
We now really need your financial support…
Why not get behind Whiteknights, show your support for the new service our volunteers are providing, by riding through the night and now during the day.
So how about this? – to celebrate our volunteers, would you consider buying a Blood Biker a ‘Virtual Beer’ to recognise their contribution to patient care the fight against COVID-19 and to say thank you.

From everyone at Whiteknights….
