Volunteers are needed to help with fundraising, from helping at coffee mornings to organising bigger events. Experienced fundraisers will bring ideas for fundraising activities, while others may want to help wit the events organised.
Dumfries & Galloway Blood Bikes is a charitable organisation set up by local volunteers to deliver essential blood and urgent medical supplies, out of hours, between hospitals and healthcare sites in South West Scotland and sometimes beyond. Outside normal office hours, the NHS relies on taxis or couriers to transfer urgent medical supplies or test samples between hospitals and other sites. Dumfries & Galloway Blood Bikes is dependent purely on charitable donations, and run entirely by volunteers who receive no compensation for their time or costs. The Blood Bike service is provided free of charge, ensuring the limited resources of the NHS can be used where it makes a difference.
Training details: All volunteers will receive induction to Blood Bikes Dumfries and Galloway, and receive support as needed from other team members
