Proud to support
Warwickshire Blood Bikes
We are just one of many Charitable organisations that provide a similar service around the United Kingdom and we are governed and overseen by the National Association of Blood Bikes NABB who share our mission to provide reliable, free and high quality provision to NHS trusts and hospices throughout the UK.
Despite having full time Jobs, many of our members still give their spare time to help run and maintain what is a truly worthwhile charity, and an organization who are intent on making a difference.
WSBB was formed by a group of Warwickshire Bikers who recognised that their passion for riding could be put to good use in the service of the local community. Originally named Warwickshire Freewheelers, its operating statement was ‘To relieve sickness and protect health by the provision of transporting urgently needed blood, drugs, human tissue and other medical requirements between hospitals and blood transfusion banks, primarily but not exclusively in Warwickshire and Coventry and surrounding areas.’ A Service Level Agreement was put in place with University Hospital of Coventry And Warwickshire which is reviewed annually
and with the support of Triumph Motorcycles, who provided two bikes to the charity at no cost, the service began operating in July 2012 undertaking deliveries between 7.00 pm and 6.00 am on weekdays and over 24 hours at weekends and bank holidays. In 2014 the group became a registered charity and amalgamated with Touchwood Emergency Riders Service based in Solihull and was renamed Warwickshire & Solihull Bloodbikes to reflect this development. Currently WSBB has over 80 members, all of whom are volunteers.
