Our mission

To provide a Free, but professional voluntary out of hours transport service to our local NHS hospitals by carrying urgent and emergency blood, platelets, samples, donor breast milk, patient notes, theatre equipment, in fact anything that can be carried by motorcycle, between hospitals that is urgently required. We began in May 2012 and as the counter shows the number of call outs we are completing is growing exponentially.

We provide this service through the night, at weekends and Bank Holidays enabling hospital funding to be better spent on patient care. Your help in doing this is always appreciated.


We have been featured in a short film from the National Lottery that will be aired on ITV, but you can see it here.

  • Marcel Falloon R.I.P.

    VERY SAD NEWS INDEED (North West Blood Bikes, Lancs & Lakes) This is a message which I never dreamt I would be writing, but I have to tell you that on Friday morning 24th June, one of our most prolific Blood Bike rider’s, friend and genuine GOOD GUY, passed away, suddenly. MARCELL FALLOON (57) Alison, his wife, phoned me to tell me the sad news and I have to say I was shocked to the core, and it took time to sink in. Marcel was such a genuine extremely good hearted man and would do anything for anyone. I have passed on our sincere condolences to Alison and family and I will keep everyone informed of what is happening. R.I.P. Marcel, you will be sorely missed. You can stand down now mate, Duty Done.

Want to help and join us?

You can always read our Newsletters here to see what we are doing and who is supporting us. If you think you can help, come and join us. You don’t have to be able to ride a bike, although we constantly need riders, you can join us as a Controller, which basically means you stay at home and receive re-directed calls from any of our Hospitals. Then it’s a case of looking on the Duty sheets and sending a rider to do the run, or you can join us as a Fundraiser.

Whichever way you can help we will welcome you on board what we think is the best Blood Bike group in the Country. Just click the “Volunteer” button below."
