Morrison’s Foundation £20,000 Grant
An AMAZING day at Blood Bikes Scotland. Today some of our team were at Morrison’s at Edinburgh Gyle shopping centre to collect a VERY generous cheque for £20,000 from the Morrison’s Foundation. We will use this to add a couple of much needed new Blood Bikes to our fleet. Many many thanks to the fantastic generosity of Morrison’s.

WELCOME CASH BOOST FOR BLOOD BIKES SCOTLAND
Leading motorcycle insurers celebrate birthday with donation to local groups.
Motorbike insurance brokers Carole Nash are celebrating their 30th anniversary this month, and to mark the milestone, have made a £6,000 donation to Blood Bikes Scotland EVS – with another five groups across the country on the receiving end of a similar gesture.
The rapid response motorcycle based charity, run by unpaid volunteers, move life-saving blood products and other vital supplies to hospitals up and down the UK.
The money has been invested in a Honda Pan European ST 1300, which has joined the group’s existing fleet of 2 bikes.
Blood Bikes Scotland’s Chairman said: “All of the work carried out by our volunteers is financed by charitable donations, we don’t receive any government funding. As such every penny is crucial and we’re extremely grateful to Carole Nash for such a generous gesture, which is going to make a big difference to what our group can achieve.”
Rebecca Donohue, Head of Marketing of Carole Nash, said: “We wouldn’t be celebrating such a milestone anniversary weren’t it for the incredible support of the biking community over the years. As a company we’re always looking for ways to give something back and have, for instance, been associated with our local Blood Bikes branch in Manchester for some time.
“As part of our 30th birthday celebrations we decided to extend our support to other regions, all of which combine to help save hundreds of lives each year. We’re very honored to be working hand-in-hand with Steven Quintus and the fantastic volunteers at Blood Bikes Scotland.”
