Keeping the blood bikes on the road

Warwickshire & Solihull Blood Bikes are a team of volunteer rider, drivers, controllers, fundraisers and supporters, who are dedicated to providing an out of hours service between 7pm and 6am weekdays, and 24 hours a day at the weekend and on Bank Holidays, supporting the NHS in transporting essential Plasma, Tissue Samples, Spinal fluids, X-Rays, Licensed drugs and any other products than can be carried safely on a motorcycle or in a car to hospitals throughout Coventry, Warwickshire & Solihull.


The blood bikes service saves the NHS thousands of pounds a year and provides a vital service to the community, making it the sort of charity Warwickshire Freemasons are delighted to support.


We have joined forces with the Freemasons Charity - the Masonic Charitable Foundation - to provide Warwickshire and Solihull Blood Bikes with the latest addition to their fleet. The BMW R1250RT is now fully liveried and proudly wears the Warwickshire Freemasonry logos and the square and compasses.

The new bike will be taking pride of place at Motorcycle Live at the NEC next week, accompanied by the sign pictured below.


The Head of Warwickshire Freemasons, Phil Hall commented, "I am delighted that we are able to support the important work of the Warwickshire and Solihull Blood Bikes and we are very grateful for the service they provide to the community. The last few years have been very challenging for local charities because of the restrictions on fund raising, which makes me all the more proud of the generosity of the Freemasons throughout Warwickshire who have made this donation possible."
