Why I volunteer…

“I heard about Northumbria Blood Bikes from volunteer rider Adam Morris and joined in November 2016.

Many years ago my mother was diagnosed with cancer and was really ill, she was given blood transfusions which made her feel well for a while, after her passing I decided to donate my blood so others would feel well as repayment for my mother’s care.

Why I volunteer…

“I first heard about Northumbria Blood Bikes on Facebook. I decided join as a volunteer as my son had been treated for Leukaemia and had lots of blood transfusions, and I wanted to say ‘Thank You’ in a small way. I had originally joined as a fundraiser and now I help the charity’s Secretary with admin.

There are lots of events going on especially during the summer; it's easy to fit in with your day to day life. The best thing I've experienced since joining is the new friends I've made and supporting all the team’s runners in the Great North Run.
