Shropshire and Staffordshire Blood bikes hit another milestone recently when Helen G passed her riders assessment with flying colours to become the local charity’s first accredited female rider. Paul C, SSBB’s rider assessor for Shropshire is seen here presenting Helen with her pass form outside of the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, a regular collection and delivery point for the Shropshire riders.
Paul said “We are truly delighted that Helen has joined our ranks and feel sure this will give encouragement to other female riders that would like to volunteer in joining us in providing urgent transport services to the local NHS trusts and hospices in Shropshire and North and East Staffordshire”
Helen, who is from Telford first passed her advanced motorcycle test four years ago and loved the idea of being able to contribute. Helen said that she went home ‘buzzing’ and hasn’t come down since.
