Plymouth Hog Charity Partnerships

South West Blood Bikes is a charity run entirely by volunteers.

We have no paid staff and make no charge for our services.

We provide a service within Devon using our own fleet and volunteers, but also provide a nationwide service by working in relay with other Blood Bike groups.

The charity is registered with the Charities Commission, registration number 1180510, with HMRC, and holds the Charities Excellence Framework “Trust Mark”.

Our aims are to save lives and improve patient outcomes, whilst at the same time saving the NHS and Hospices money which they can use instead of where it should be used – on patient care.

To date, our volunteers have been called out more than 5,032 times and moved over 26,906 individual items for these facilities – and in 2024 we expect to do even more – saving the NHS and Hospices in Devon well over £250,000
