Blood Bikes receive no government funding or intervention for what is an essential life saving service, our vehicles are seen regularly travelling up and down motorways from hospital to hospital, attending events, fundraising at shopping centres throughout Ireland, when people see our vehicles there first impression is they are state or HSE owned vehicles until they speak to the volunteers. Each and every group have to maintain, equip and run their own group by fundraising, 100% of everything that is collected is put back into maintaining and running of this service, therefore are solely reliant on donations, sponsorship and fundraising.
Blood Bike groups are run by volunteers who give 100% of their time freely to enable this service to continue, everyone involved riders, drivers, controllers, fundraisers even admin staff receive no payment or gratuity of any kind whatsoever. Volunteers are trained to a very high standard and continually monitored to ensure the standards are maintain while providing this service to the hospitals, hospices and medical centres throughout Ireland.
