Bucket Collections
 
At tonight’s game there will be a bucket collection at the turnstiles for the charity BloodBikes.
 
BloodBikes Manchester is a registered charity, which offers an out of hours and free of charge urgent medical courier service to the NHS. They volunteer to play our part in saving people’s lives and save the NHS money that would otherwise be used on taxis or expensive couriers.
 
Their courier service helps transport consignments such as:
  • Blood for transfusion, platelets or other blood products
  • Blood, urine, or other tissue samples
  • X-Rays, scans and CD-ROMs
  • Patient notes
  • Controlled drugs
  • Frozen breast milk
  • Any other medical items or small pieces of medical equipment such as syringes and cannulas
Their service is provided by volunteers all of which provide their time for no pay or reward, 365 days a year, 7pm-6am weekdays and 24 hours weekends, bank holidays and even Christmas Day!

Due to being a non-funded charity, we rely entirely on donations from the public through collections at supermarkets doing collection stands of even bag-packing.
