About a year ago, our rider Ian B delivered essential medical equipment from the Childrens ward at Stoke to this lovely young man at his home in Whitchurch. Ian said It was a privilege to meet him and his family. His name was Ben Evison aged 14yrs. We heard today, from his Mum, Katherine, that Ben had passed away (following neck and spine surgery) last month. Katherines message to Ian was It’s been a year since you made that special delivery to Ben and we appreciated it very much. You do a fantastic  job and deserve the world for doing this job. Our sincere condolences to all the family and thank you Katherine for getting in touch with us.

It was a privilege to meet this young man .My lasting impression was an excited Ben whizzing around the bloodbike pushing me out of the way to get a decent picture.I have to say I got caught up in the moment.Sorry about the social distancing .But hey ..its a privilege. Thank you Ben and thank you SSCBB for the opportunity.

Condolences to all who knew Ben.

Nice to see you again😀

Have a lovely day xx

Last week, SSCBB were invited to St Peters School, Bratton and what a great reception we received from the children. And what a great fundraiser - they donated nearly £600!  Teacher, Emma, reported, We had an amazing Blood Bikes day! The children were invited to come dressed in red for Blood Bikes in exchange for a contribution to the charity. The children learnt lots about the important role the volunteer Blood Bikers do and how they help children in our local community. Children were inspired to consider how they can give back to their communities when they grow up. The Blood Bikers put on fun and informative outdoor workshops for all of our children and warmly welcomed our families before and after school. The children especially loved sitting on the bikes! And we loved meeting all of you too. #itswhatwedoImage attachmentImage attachment

Roger Perry, a retired environmental health officer from Haughton near Stafford recently made contact with Helen B regarding raising further funds for SSCBB. Roger had been instrumental in raising monies for us before with the 30th Annual Vintage Tractor Run which was organised in Staffordshire in April 2017.
On this occasion it was on a slightly smaller scale. 
Armed with flasks and sandwiches 26 vintage tractor drivers travelled a circular route from Haughton to Swynnerton stopping off at a local hostelry for refreshments.
They donated the  very generous amount of £440 to our charity.
We thank them so much for their continued support.Image attachmentImage attachment

Fabulous, it was an honour to have led the 2017 run. Thank you once again.

Lovely amount of money thank you

With the ever-increasing need for the #NHS to save money but without compromising #PatientCare, the demands upon the #Charity grow each year. SSCBB needs to grow to meet this increasing demand. Find out how you can help here: https://ssbbgroup.org.uk/

We are so looking forward to Wellington Bikefest this coming Saturday, 10 - 3 in the Town Centre, organised by Wellington Rotary raising funds for us. On show will be Spirit of Rotary - our BMW F800 funded by the Four Rotary Clubs in Telford & Wrekin from funds raised during the 2017 Tree of Light appeal. We are delighted that one of our Patrons, Mrs Anna Turner, the Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire will be there.  Also supporting the event are Stratstone Harley-Davidson Wolverhampton, the local dealership, and the Wolfruna Chapter, Harley Owners Group. They will have some very special bikes on show including a customised Heritage Classic - Day of the Dead themed HD and a tribute bike dedicated to Captain Sir Tom Moore, who raised millions for NHS charities last year. The West Mercia Police BikeSafe team will be there giving visitors the opportunity to view one of their bikes and learn more about the BikeSafe scheme. 
SSCBB looks forward to seeing you, a great opportunity to find out more about our service.

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
