We were pleased to welcome the Freewheelers Emergency Voluntary Service to fundraise in-store today with their Blood Bikes. The charity is made up of volunteers who ride to provide a free service to the NHS and play a part in saving people's lives. Since 1990 the Freewheelers EVS have provided a courier service to the NHS that runs throughout weeknights, weekends and bank holidays. They ferry diagnostic blood specimens, x-rays scans and equipment to hospitals in and around the area. Such a great cause. Well done to all the volunteers!
