Blood Bikes Manchester is a charity setup in Greater Manchester that transports Blood, Plasma, Platelets, Samples, Vaccines, Donor Breast Milk (DBM) & any other urgently required medical items to hospitals and healthcare sites- at night, daytime weekends* and bank holidays. This service is provided completely free of charge by our amazing volunteers who all offer their time for no pay or reward, allowing the NHS to divert funds where they are needed most. Working alongside a network of other blood bike charities covering a large proportion of the country.

All working from home, with no expensive office or unit to pay for, the donations we receive really do pay to provide our service. We have no paid staff and even our volunteers don’t claim any form of expenses, why, because #itswhatwedo
