It is the early hours of the morning and a hospital urgently requires blood. Hospitals within Shropshire, Staffordshire and Cheshire have little choice but to call a local taxi company to collect and deliver the blood. The hospital would then be charged retail rates for this "service", which can cost between £200-300 per trip!
That's where blood bikes come in!!
As a registered charity, we rely upon the help from volunteers as well as charitable donations from our supporters.
