Covid-19 Appeal – Please Donate Today!

The pressures on our National Health Service have been in the spotlight in this unprecedented year.

Now more than ever Blood Bikes Scotland are providing critical services to NHS trusts across the Lothians, Borders, Fife and Forth Valley.

And like all charities this year has been extremely challenging for us. We rely heavily on donations from the Great British public and receive no money from the NHS.

Due to Covid restrictions we have not been able to actively fundraise for most of the year. We are asking for small donations to keep us on the road, doing what we do best and supporting the NHS.

£15 provides a tank of fuel for one of our motorcycles.
£35 provides a week of electricity for our electric scooter.
£100 buys one new tyre for our motorcycles.

Blood Bikes Scotland (BBS) is an amazing charity, 100% run by volunteers. They form part of the National Association of Blood Bikes (NABB) and do fantastic work on behalf of NHS Lothian, Fife, Borders and Forth Valley.

They provide a free courier service transporting equipment, medication, documentation and blood samples between main hospitals, community hospitals, nursing homes, labs and patients’ home addresses.

No volunteer is paid and they do not receive any NHS or Government funding. They are highly commended for this excellent service to people in their time of need.

I send you my sincere appreciation for all your hard work.
