'Twas the night before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house.

Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse...well except for a few devoted Blood Bike volunteers.

Unlike Santa they won’t be travelling around the globe, but around the North East of England, they will be delivering packages just as important and eagerly awaited.

So, as you wake up to open your gifts with your family in the morning they may just have delivered urgent medical supplies or blood.

That isn’t abnormal for our team but in our eyes it is just as magical in its own rights.

Blood Biking Santa Run 2018

As Northumbria Blood Bikes approach the start of 252 hours of service, with just over a week until the big day, the volunteers have began by spreading festive cheer to children in our North East Hospitals. It all started last year with the first Northumbria Blood Biking Santa run. After months of organisation the team rallied donations of gifts and toys to deliver to children. Many of those children unfortunately find themselves spending Christmas in hospital undergoing specialist care.

After 20 years Geordie Broon MCC have closed their club and they have donated half of their remaining money to Northumbria Blood Bikes. The other half will be going to our friends at The Great North Air Ambulance. It sad to hear of the closure of the club but we are very grateful that they chose to support us with a donation of £1571.19.

News was received that NBB were extremely successful with the Tesco Consett bags of help voting during September, and October. We came first in the vote and will be receiving £4000.

Fantastic news again, from our third Tesco blue token voting. Each of the grants that NBB has received will go towards funding new bikes for next year.

This achievement is something that the NBB should be extremely proud of. Its wonderful to know that the support that NBB has in the community is amazing and grows with each shift, talk or publicity event we do.
