Welcome to Greater Manchester Blood Bikes

Greater Manchester Blood Bikes is the only blood bikes charity operating 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.

The service we offer is provided free of charge to NHS facilities and we can only do this because of our amazing volunteers, who are all giving their time for no pay or reward.

Our service allows the local NHS teams we work with to divert funds they would have spent on costly on-demand couriers, to those services where they are needed most within the communities we serve.

We work alongside a network of other blood bike charities covering a large proportion of the country and often take part in relay runs with them, where products need to be transported longer distances.

We do not receive any payment for our services, or any form of subsidy or government funding and we only exist because of the generosity of individuals, organisations, groups and businesses who support us with donations and sponsorships.  

We have no offices, vehicle or general storage facilities to pay for, our volunteers kindly use their own phones and we undertake as many of our support functions as possible to keep our costs down.

As a result of how we operate, this means every single donation we receive goes directly into operational delivery of the charity services.

Just £3.00 pays for the bike fuel for one potentially lifesaving delivery of urgent blood to a local hospital.
