Good Evening All
It may be the 31st of December, less than a week on from Christmas day, but that hasn’t stopped SSBB from continuing our relentless march toward fully operational Blood Bike group!
This week has seen us undertake two “Trial Runs” incorporating four hospitals in our local communities. On Saturday 29th December, a hardy group of riders braved the bitterly cold weather to ride from the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford across to Shrewsbury Royal Hospital. Today saw a similar such journey, this time in torrential rain, between The Countess of Chester Hospital and the University Hospital of North Staffordshire.
The purpose of these trips was to assess the routes that many of our blood bikers will soon be utilising, as well as to become accustomed to the layouts of the hospitals and meet the front line personnel we will be working and interacting with during our operations. It was also the first time we could test our logistics systems. On all counts both rides were a success and we can now build on these as we enter 2014!
From everyone at SSBB, we wish all our supporters a happy and prosperous New Year!
