The theme of Gnosall Carnival today was Local Heroes.  SSCBB were delighted, once again, to lead the parade.  Our members were in attendance to promote the charity and our work and Roger H and Dave S brought along Bloodbikes Fiona and Nightowl.  Always a lovely day for the villagers and the weather was kind.  Local residents have been very supportive of our charity for many years and it was great to join them again.Image attachment

We currently have 15 liveried blood bikes, situated strategically across the three counties in secure locations, often at fire stations or within hospital grounds. Many of our bikes have been funded by the generosity of organisations, Trusts and companies but the running costs are met by our own fundraising efforts ๐Ÿ All our #BloodBikes have names, often associated with a person who has influenced our charity in some way! #SSCBB ๐Ÿ™‚ Read the story behind each of our bikes here: https://bit.ly/3jV56ga
We have a team of 30 speakers located throughout #Shropshire, #Staffordshire and #Cheshire, raising awareness of the work carried out by the #BloodBike charities ๐Ÿ“…๐Ÿ“– Our Speaker Team will probably deliver over 160 talks this year with bookings still being requested!

SSCBB member Helen B was privileged to be invited to Richard Hubbards retirement presentation yesterday.  Richard has been a Gnosall fire crew member for 41 years, an incredible achievement, one to be very proud of.

We value the support and good relationship with Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service.

Following on from the recent very successful Wellington Bikefest, organised by the Wellington Rotary and involving SSCBB and the local Harley-Davidson group, our rider Michael B attended a cheque presentation lunch at the Buckatree Hotel. Michael did a combined Zoom and face to face presentation updating the Rotarians on SSCBBs activity. President Tom Taylor then presented Michael with a cheque for ยฃ1,564.52.

What people say about us

โ€œThe blood bikes are vital to getting our life saving faecal transplants to critically ill patients with C. dificile infectionโ€

Professor Peter Hawkey, FMT Service Lead, PHE Public Health Laboratory Birmingham

โ€œOn a regular basis we need to transport samples urgently, between Shrewsbury and Telford, and also from here in Shropshire to Birmingham and beyond. In the past it has been quite difficult, out of hours, to get those samples moving quickly, so it has made a huge difference to us to be able to rely on blood bikes to get those samples moving for us.โ€

Debbie Jones, Support Services Care Group Director Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

โ€œThe voluntary service the blood bikes offer us has been instrumental in widening the scope of our FMT service across the country and ensuring costs are a low as possible for the NHSโ€

Dr Vicki McCune, FMT Service Manager PHE Public Health Laboratory Birmingham

โ€œThere is certainly times when the quicker we can get results back, the better the outcome for the patient, so blood bikes are helping to save lives and, at the same time, they are saving the NHS lots of moneyโ€

Debbie Jones, Support Services Care Group Director Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

โ€œWe are so grateful to the volunteer riders who give up their time to courier blood products and urgent samples for testing between our hospitals and the regional NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) centre in Birmingham. Every minute counts when it comes to helping seriously-ill and injured patients and being able to call on the blood bikes round the clock helps us to provide safe, effective treatment and transfusions.โ€

Paula Gardener, Chief Nurse Burton Hospital Trust (covering Burton, Lichfield and Tamworth)

โ€œWe very much appreciate all of their efforts and the support they give both SaTH and the wider NHS.โ€

Debbie Jones, Support Services Care Group Director Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust
