Durham Lions Support Northumbria Blood Bikes

Durham Lions donated £300.00 to Northumbria Blood Bikes in recognition of their invaluable service which have been further enhanced by their link up with the Great North Air Ambulance Service.

Northumbria Blood Bikes (NBB) is a registered charity providing a free out-of-hours voluntary courier service for hospitals across County Durham, Tyne and Wear and Northumberland. from 7pm to 7am weekdays and all day at weekends and bank holidays. They transport urgent, emergency items such as blood, platelets, plasma, samples requiring immediate analysis and patient notes providing background information on A&E patients.

Commencing in January 2015 NBB, working in conjunction with their sister group in Cumbria, linked with GNAAS to initiate a ‘Blood on Board’ (BoB) service, enabling blood to be carried the helicopters, thus facilitating vital transfusions at accident scenes. Up to now the BoB blood scheme has enabled 11 critically injured victims to be transfused at the scene of their accident.
