Good Afternoon Everyone
This week Chris and Paul (SSBB Chairman and Vice-Chairman respectively) had the opportunity to serve with other blood bikers on the Nationwide Association of Blood Bikes (NABB) stand at the NEC Motorcycle Live show.
The purpose of this collaboration was to help raise the profile of the various blood bike charities around the country and to talk to prospective members. During Paul’s stint on Thursday (28th November 2013), he spoke to a number of prospective riders, four of which could be volunteering with Shrops & Staffs in the near future! Furthermore, dozens of people simply stopped off at the stand to find out what of we’re all about and of course, play with the bike!
The highlight of the day was Steve Harris and Mark Hayes (From Channel 5’s Emergency Bikers) stopping by for a chat! Paul also had the opportunity to talk with a journalist from Adventure Bike magazine about the great work and dedication of NABB and the blood bikers, that may get a mention in the next issue. Paul said ” I had a great day, I was looking forward to looking round the show myself but didn’t get that much time to in the end as the stand was busy all day. I was amazed at the great reaction from people visiting the stand after finding out what we do and the generous support we get from the biking community as a whole”.
The NEC Live event was a great success for all involved, so thank you to Paul and Chris for representing the group on the national scene and to all of our supporters who visited us during the event!
