Woodspring Lodge gave a donation of £234.41 to the Freewheelers Emergency Volunteer Service (Blood Bikes).
Freewheelers EVS is a registered charity which offers an out of hours, free of charge courier service to the NHS. Freewheelers transport blood, pathology and microbiology specimens, patient notes, X-rays, breast milk and other medical supplies, plus deliver every night to two local Air Ambulance bases. During the Covid year 2020-21, we made over 7792 deliveries, riding more than 225,000 miles . Their slogan “Riding For Life” describes their operation perfectly. They ride to play a part in saving peoples lives, and to help the NHS divert money that would otherwise be spent on taxis or expensive couriers, but more than anything else they ride because they love it and wish to put something back into the community.
A cheque was presented to Colin Stone outside the Yatton Lodge building by WM. Geoffrey Mackett and Peter Ansell.
