Riding to the rescue

A LIFE-SAVING charity is seeking support.

Northumbria Blood Bikes provides out-of-hours delivery of medical supplies to hospitals and health centres across the region, saving the NHS thousands of pounds on taxis or couriers.

The service is financed through fund-raising events, sponsorship and donations.

Anyone who can take a collection box, host a promotional event, sponsor a bike, join the group or give other support should call 07766 479770.
