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.

When we first found out that the Revenants MCC were holding a fundraising night to the Great North Air Ambulance and our charity we had no idea how successful it was going to be. Their hard work paid off with a great night had by all those who attended. We certainly appreciate the efforts that went into supporting not only us by a charity we work closely with.

Send a charity Christmas e-card!

Rather than sending the traditional Christmas cards this year why don't you send an e-card? You can then donate the cost of the cards and stamps you would have sent which will go towards keeping our service running this winter. Our winning Christmas card competition design is waiting to be sent this year: http://www.dontsendmeacard.com/ecard/yp1q

Could you join our team to support this winter?

Kirsty Lawrence's picture

The winter months are here again, with the darker nights already upon us, and we have already seen the first cold flurries of the white stuff. What does this mean for us as a charity?

During this season we rely on car drivers a tad more to keep our service running. When the roads become slippery we have a duty of care to our riders and call our drivers into action. Not only that but below 3 degrees we cannot transport whole blood on bikes so our drivers are an integral part of continuous service in the winter.

Newest addition to our fleet

Kirsty Lawrence's picture

Today we selected our newest addition to the fleet in replacement of our kangoo which unfortunately suffered a serious mechanical problem. We have purchased a Skoda Octavia Scout, this is a used ambulance responder vehicle, which will be our second automatic car in the fleet. This will put us back to a full compliment of cars in preparation for the winter months ahead. After some small graphic changes, such as green to orange, we expect her to slot straight into our operational fleet.
