Back in August, all in aid of SSCBB, the Dog & Partridge Angling Club held a Fishing Contest at  Bridgeview Fishery (sponsored by Bridgeview Fishery, Fishermania Burton and Ians Tackle.  They raised over £700 for us and last night our riders Elaine and Tom met with club members at the pub for the cheque handover. Many thanks for your generosity.

With the ever-increasing need to support the NHS in caring for their patients, the demands upon the #Charity grow each year. #SSCBB needs to grow to meet this increasing demand. To do so, we need more #Volunteers, whether that be in the form of riders, fundraisers or controllers. If you are interested in joining us, take a look at our website to learn more!
For the past year a very special group of people led by SSCBB member Chris B have been planning a major fundraising event for us - a Black Tie Dinner Dance. The group - Chris, Katy, Zella, Sara and Paula pulled it off big time and in one memorable evening in September raised just over £25,000 for our charity. A new bike will be purchased early next year with these proceeds and we look forward to hearing what name they have chosen for the bike. Several of our members and a blood bike attended the event.
Chris and his team and SSCBB want to send a huge thank you to over 50 local businesses who supported the event, through advertising in the brochure, sponsoring the champagne reception and donating auction prizes; without whom they would not have been able to reach the amazing total. Also many of the businesses they approached hadnt heard of Blood Bikes, so it was also spreading awareness within the business community. 
Pictured are the amazing people who did this for us and a pic of our members who attended.Image attachment

A change of audience for Speaker Team member Dave S. when he teamed up with rider Andy W. on a visit to the 1st Priorslee and St Georges Beavers group.  Lots of questions, lots of colouring and lots of potential new riders who sat on bloodbike Rainbow.Image attachment
Wed like to introduce you to Wilf, one of our most recently recruited riders who had his first couple of shouts this week. Wilf is retired and is a bit special to us at SSCBB because he is the 1,000th applicant to join our charity since we started operations in 2014. Welcome Wilf, good to have you on board.

Can hardly believe this was 3 years ago on 7th November 2020, an amazing weekend which resulted in coverage on BBC Midlands Today and helped so many vulnerable people - so proud of what we achieved.

This weekend is OPERATION CARE as we are working in partnership with the NHS Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Group to deliver 200 much needed Pulse Oximeters to Care Homes. The devices have been provided by the NHS to help monitor the physical health of people in care homes who have Covid-19 symptoms or have tested positive by measuring their pulse and the level of oxygen in their blood. Some 28 of our volunteers, riders and controllers are involved in the distribution of the oximeters .
Alison Massey, Interim Programmes and Redesign Lead Urgent Care at CCG says “Learning from the first wave of the virus identified that blood oxygen levels are a good indicator of how poorly a person is, we are incredibly grateful for the support from the Blood Bike volunteers. Giving our care homes pulse oximeters will mean more people can be safely monitored in their home and the readings, which take seconds, can help a doctor or clinician to quickly assess if they are deteriorating and need to be admitted to hospital.”
SSCBB Chair, Jeremy C says "We are delighted to be able to support the Shropshire CCG in this time of need. Making coordinated deliveries to 160 care homes over two days is the largest single job we have undertaken so far and clearly demonstrates the flexibility, responsiveness and professionalism our volunteers provide.” Well done everyone involved. #itswhatwedo

Operating 24/7 and occupying a central location, at #SSCBB we undertake a number of long distance deliveries! These deliveries are made on behalf of the North West Human Milk Bank, University of Birmingham (Faecal Matter transplants) and other #BloodBike groups along with their local hospitals!

Love being a small part of this charity

Small Dot ??? I would suggest you play a much bigger part

SSCBB truly appreciates the support and donations from the Staffordshire Masonry, their target being the funding of a new blood bike for early next year. We have received several generous donations from various lodges in recent months and pictured here is the handover of a substantial £4000 cheque from the Staffordshire Provincial Grand Stewards Lodge. Our rider Phil B receiving the cheque from rider Mark F. Thank you very, very much.

Comment on Facebook

The generosity demonstrated by the various lodges makes our lives at the point of delivery so much easier, thank you so much.

Wow !!! How wonderful ! Thank u

We look forward to supporting Shropshire • Staffordshire • Cheshire Blood Bikes to enable a new bike to be purchased ASAP. 🤝👏👍

Apparently the masons donate absolutely loads to charity, fair play to them and thank you for all you do.

A generous donation to a very worthy cause ,thank you to all who help and all who perform this service.

Good effort team

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 🏍 All our #BloodBikes have names, often associated with a person who has influenced our charity in some way! #SSCBB 🙂 Read the story behind each of our bikes here:

Fabulous! That's the bike my brother-in-law donated.

This morning Cheshire Lead Steve H went to church !!!!
He was collecting a £500 donation made by the good people of St Mary’s in Handbidge in Chester. After inviting the Rector, Rik, to try out Cheshire Freemason for size, it seemed only fair that Steve should try out Rik’s means of transport in return. 
Once again, a big thank you to St Mary’s for your generosity and hospitality today.Image attachmentImage attachment

Awww how lovely !

Bless you

Well done St Mary's

Last week Colin C-W went along to Middlewich Classic Car and Bike Club where he was presented with a check for £400 from their Chairman, Jim Bean. The donation was from the profits of their show in July, an event that the Cheshire team attend every year at the request of the club. A massive  “Thank You !” from all of us at SSCBB

Congratulations Chris x

Last year (2022), our fleet travelled 321,039 miles and that involves replacing quite a few tyres so we were delighted when North Staffordshire Round Table Lodge No. 8355 gave us £500 towards some new tyres for our bikes based in North Staffs. SSCBB rider Phil B received the cheque from Worshipful Master Pete Nacson (Head of the Lodge). Many thanks.

We have a team of 30 speakers located throughout #Shropshire, #Staffordshire and #Cheshire, raising awareness of the work carried out by the #BloodBike charities 📅📖 Our Speaker Team will probably deliver over 160 talks this year with bookings still being requested! Find out more about our charity talks here:
If reading about the work we do has made you think about #GivingBlood take a look at our website to see how easy it can be to do so!
Vice Chair Lynne was recently presented with a £500 cheque from our member Mark F on behalf of  the Staffordshire Masonic Clay Shooting Association who meet monthly and spend the morning trying to hit clays and have a great time of friendship and brotherhood. Each person that attends makes a small payment to participate, this builds up over the year and on the recommendation of one of their members, the Staffordshire Provincial Mentor, the club unanimously voted to make the SSCBB their new charity. They are a small club and all the work they do at meetings, shooting competitions etc is all voluntary so any money they receive is pure profit so in a small way they hope to be able to support the SSCBB in the future with further donations.
Our thanks to you all for your generosity.

What people say about us

“The blood bikes are vital to getting our life saving faecal transplants to critically ill patients with C. dificile infection”

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

“On 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.”

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

“The 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 NHS”

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

“There 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 money”

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

“We 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.”

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

“We very much appreciate all of their efforts and the support they give both SaTH and the wider NHS.”

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