Derbyshire Blood Bikes Receives Donation From Belper Halloween Spooktacular Bucket Collection 2019

by Amber Valley Info on Tuesday 12 November 2019

The event hosted by Andy & Nikki Fearnley raised £93.01, for Derbyshire Blood Bikes.

Derbyshire Blood Bikes were placed, next to a garden display where Andy & Nikki decorated a neighbour’s front garden for Halloween as a cemetery and asked passer-by to make a donation. This was part the Halloween Spooktacular Fun which was raising funds for the Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance (DLRAA).

We are already planning for next year’s event, please come and support this amazing evening at our new location of 6 Pottery Close Belper it will be a Halloween Spookdracular fun for all the family & fiends. If you would like to join us please email me at We would really apricate if a Local Dance Troop that can come and join as we celebrate our 10th Year.

Derbyshire Blood Bikes is part of a national network of blood bike groups covering most of the UK and Ireland. All groups are independent charity organisations, raising their own funds and agreeing working arrangements with local NHS Trusts. In that respect, all blood bike groups are distinct in size and scale of operations. Derbyshire Blood Bikes began in 2011 with a group of Derby-based motorcyclists. In 2012, gaining formal Charity Commission registration with aims which included ‘saving the NHS Money and lives.  Starting with just two Honda motorcycles, the group served the Derby Hospital Blood Bank to transport occasional diagnostic and referencing samples on an out-of-hours basis, along with establishing the donated-milk transport service to the Birmingham Milk Bank. Eventually, the scheduled weekend service for the city-based Urgent Care Centre Phlebotomy and Sexual Health Clinics gave volunteer riders guaranteed runs. They have made almost 900 journeys for our local NHS, over 60% to out-of-county locations and saved our local NHS over £45,000 on transport costs and helped in the treatment of thousands of patients.
