At Cornwall Blood Bikes we wanted to embrace and capture Volunteers week ( 1st June – 7th June 2018)
This week was a showcase of national celebration of the contribution millions of volunteers all over the UK make.
Here at CBB we celebrated the true dedication & commitment and the very special fact that every single one of our 80+ members are all volunteers which include our trustees, committee members, riders, co-ordinators, and fundraisers.
We covered over 96,000 miles last year supporting our NHS partners, hospitals and hospices across Cornwall and all for free.
The first weekend of June yet again we were operational across Cornwall 24 hours a day as we are every weekend of the year.
Saturday 2nd June saw Richard T, Kevin C, Mike R, Peter W, Stuart H, Simon O, Robert S, Steve R, and Tim C as the on duty riders covering the County. Some of the jobs included a J28 run with our colleagues from Bristol, Freewheelers EVS.
Our on duty co-ordinators for the two shifts were Dave “Trudge” T, and James F
Also in the East of our County there was a large fundraising event in aid of CBB and in attendance were Julie M, Alan M, yet again Kevin C and Ian B.
Richard is also our CBB secretary, Ian our Fundraising Manager and James our Chair so their day was not just simple tasking with all the background work that goes on behind the scenes every single day.
Today was just one simple day out of 365 days.
Every single one of these individuals along with all our other volunteers dedicating their time to offer a bespoke, dedicated and professional service to our NHS partners, and hospices across Cornwall and beyond.
Improving patient care and bringing that care closer to home.
