It comes as no surprise that our bikes have been stood down during this extreme weather but did you know we have blood cars? Our team of drivers have stepped behind the wheels of our fleet’s cars. They will remain on shift as long as it is safe for them to do so.

We have achieved so many things over the past 4 years and we couldn’t be prouder! We couldn’t do it without the support of you amazing lot out there. From our volunteers, donors, our patrons, the general public and not forgetting the families of those who give their time to keep our fleet on the roads. Thank you all!

Blood Biking Santa Run

Kirsty Lawrence's picture

As Northumbria Blood Bikes approach the start of their 96 hours of continuous service they began by spreading festive cheer to The Great North Children’s Hospital. It all started when one volunteer, Sean Jamieson, had an idea and spoke to other like minded members of the charity about a Blood Biking Santa run. After a bit of quick organisation a team was pulled together who then rallied donations of toys to deliver to children. Many of those unfortunately find themselves spending Christmas in hospital undergoing specialist care.
