Blood Bikes Wales is a registered charity that was launched in 2011 to help deliver urgent medical supplies to various hospitals. They use motorcycles to deliver blood, plasma, milk and operating theatre equipment between hospitals in Wales and England. Using motorcycles means these urgent and sometimes life saving supplies can be delivered quickly and efficiently without getting held up in traffic. This service is offered free of charge to the health authorities, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All Blood Bike riders and members are unpaid volunteers giving as much of their valuable time as they can to this fantastic charity from their busy lives.

Already having a great relationship with South Wales Motorcycle dealer “Thunder Road Motorcycles” who prepare and service the Blood Bikes Wales fleet of bikes, Thunder Road Director Dave Mobberley and Ray Phillips, Fleet Controller for Blood Bikes Wales came up with the funds to provide 50 Hi-visibility motorcycle jackets for the Blood Bike riders.

 

 

 

Said Ray Phillips “Thunder Road have been working tirelessly with Blood Bikes Wales to get these jackets produced before the end of the year and expressed his gratitude for the support that Thunder Road has shown. The new jackets will have a great impact with the riders as they are weatherproof and will enhance the visibility of our volunteer riders”.

The jackets were presented to Blood Bikes Wales on 29th November at Thunder Road Motorcycles, Bridgend and Cwmbran stores.

So if you see a motorcyclist out on the road wearing one of these jackets give him or her a wave, they could be saving someone’s life!
