Blood Bike charity gets much needed Christmas gift…

Official release from Whiteknights Yorkshire Blood Bikes Communications.

Whiteknights Yorkshire Blood Bikes have received a vitally needed gift donation in time for Christmas to support their free-of-charge transportation service to hospitals and hospices in the region.

West Yorkshire Advanced Motorcyclists, a member group of IAM Roadsmart, presented a cheque for £1200 at Overgate Hospice to support the ongoing voluntary work of the Yorkshire Blood Bike Charity.

Neil Clarkson of WYAMs commented: “Not only do we train Advanced Motorcyclists who go on to volunteer for Whiteknights, but we understand the financial pressure the lack of fundraising this year has caused Whiteknights.

It’s a fantastic charity that benefits patients and we are delighted to have spent the entire year fundraising for them.”

800 free of charge lockdown journeys for Sheffield Hospitals.

Volunteer motorcyclists carry 800 free-of-charge journeys to transport blood samples since the start of the first lockdown.

As the temporary Phlebotomy Testing site at the Sheffield Arena relocates and the involvement of Whiteknights Yorkshire Blood Bikes comes to a close, the Yorkshire Blood Bike charity announce a grand total of 800 voluntary journeys transporting blood samples to Sheffield hospitals.

Whiteknights South Yorkshire Regional Manager, Roy Clark commented:

“It’s been a real privilege to support Sheffield patients and Sheffield Hospitals by transporting blood samples every hour free-of-charge to the NHS.

“Our volunteers have been so enthusiastic and have shown a great deal of commitment to provide this transportation service on a daily basis since the temporary site at the Arena opened earlier this year.

“We’ve had such positive feedback from Clinical staff saying how reliable and rapid our blood bike service has been and has really contributed to the speed in which patients could receive their blood test results.”

South Yorkshire Whiteknights will now focus on their usual out-of-hours service, overnight and 24 hours at weekends.
