Welcome to Volunteer Bikers
I’m Jason Lee a Volunteer Blood Biker from Lancashire, I started Volunteer Bikers in October 2016 whilst I was off work after having a spinal operation.
There are 43 Blood Bike charities in the UK & Ireland who all support the NHS & HSE for free delivering Blood, Blood samples, platelets, Donor breast milk, medical equipment and much more.
I wanted to bring all the Charities together in one place which is why I started the Group.
It’s been running nearly 3 years now and it’s become very successful within the blood bike community connecting riders, Controllers & Fundraisers together in one easy place.
Allowing each group to share the amazing Voluntary work they do on a daily basis.
Hope you enjoy the website 😊
