Norfolk Blood Bikes relies solely on donations from the general public and support from local businesses.
We are proud to say that the Trustees, Committee and Members ar all volunteers and draw no income from the Charity. Because of this our administration costs are kept as low as possible.
However, It costs between £4000 and £5000 per month for Norfolk Blood Bikes to continue to support our local Hospitals and with the ever increasing need for the NHS to save money without compromising patient care, the demands upon the charity grow each year.
All of the funds raised go toward the running costs of the group. Here are just a few examples of the things we have needed to buy and will have to replace as they age:
We have a dedicated Fund Raising Team the organise and attend numerous events throughout the year.
That team is supported by the other Members. Riders and Drivers will accompany them with the vehicles and Controllers will provide additional 'manpower' to talk to the public and hold the donation cans.
You will see us about in the local community :
We are always happy to accept donations and explain to the public what we do at these events.
