This Sunday, we will be at Houghhall College, Durham for the Dogwise event, and on 7th June, we will be at the Leas in South Shields for the Great North Dog Walk event, the 25th anniversary one. Please come and see us at either / both, or better still, volunteer to help out at one of both events.


NBB supports Extension to Blood on Board

Demo Committee's picture

The Great North Air Ambulance Service is starting a car based service on a Friday & Saturday nights to provide emergency cover at busy times when the helicopter doesn’t fly.  The Blood on Board service will be extended to include the car allowing trauma specialists working with GNAAS save even more lives, by delivering emergency blood directly to the scene of life-threatening accidents.

To support the extension of the Blood on Board service, Northumbria Blood Bikes will be delivering an extra cool box on Thursday and Friday evenings.


Andromeda is Coming

Following investigation and testing by a group of members, and subsequent approval by a ballot of all members, NBB is moving ahead with the purchase and introduction of an Andromeda radio system for operational use.  In the first phase the system will be covering the three duty bike riders and the two duty car drivers and puts them in two-way communication with each other and with our in-house shift controllers.  Additionally, the radios can be tracked and with the aid of GPS technology the precise locations of all of the radios can be monitored over the internet by our shift controllers. 


Do you want to volunteer for a local charity?

Northumbria Blood Bikes are looking to recruit individuals to take calls from hospitals and pass on to the operational volunteers to carry out tasks. Would you like to know more? 

We are also looking for more people to become fundraisiers, mostly at a weekend. Does this interest you? 

Please visit the volunteering section for more information on how to volunteer
