Our chairman attended the NABB (National Association of Blood Bikes) meeting held today. It was recognised at this meeting that SSBB are the group next inline to become a full NABB member!
Amongst the items discussed was the next Prescott event which helps fund NABB who in turn help new groups like ourselves. If you fancy a go at the famous hill Prescott Hill Climb then get booking soon as there are limited slots. If you prefer to spectate. then advanced tickets are £12 compared with £15 on the gate.
NABB will also be at Motorcycle Live from November 23rd to December 1st at the NEC in Birmingham. SSBB members will be manning the stand at periods during the show, so come on down and support us! We hope to gain some new members as a result to ensure continuity of service to our local NHS establishments across Staffordshire and Shropshire.
When talking about blood bikes nationally, the scene is now 23 groups with nearly 1200 members travelling 250,000 miles serving 260 hospitals, pretty impressive stuff!
