Fundraising is the lifeblood of any charity and it is no less so for Blood Bikes Wales. We have dedicated enthusiastic members who do a fantastic job raising money to help the NHS in Wales. To service the NHS we have thirteen bikes on the road and continuously need to upgrade and replace our fleet.
Despite having full-time jobs, many of our members still give their spare time in the interest of a worthwhile charity that is intent on making a difference. But to maintain the great service, we provide the charity needs to raise in the region of £39,000 per year to cover the running costs of the bikes within the fleet.
All donations large or small are gratefully received and move us towards our ongoing goal of ensuring we have the funds to continue with our service. It’s not just the running costs, when we have to replace a bike it can cost £12,000 for a fully service ready Blood Bike.
The major supermarkets have kindly allowed us to collect at their stores and their customers have been extremely generous in donating to Blood Bikes Wales.
