Lincolnshire Emergency Blood Bikes
The Morrisons Foundation has donated £14,700 to Lincolnshire Emergency Blood Bikes Service (LEBBS), a charity that provides an out of hours courier service of blood, patient samples and other materials in an emergency situation throughout the Lincolnshire region.
The support from the Morrisons Foundation has enabled two new motorbikes to be purchased. The bikes will be used to transport packages of blood from Lincoln County Hospital to the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance (LNAA) base at RAF Waddington and to NHS facilities throughout the region on a daily basis.
Wendy Hunsley, Fundraising & Events Co-Ordinator at the charity said, “LEBBS feel very privileged to receive funds from the Morrisons Foundation which have enabled us to replace two of our motorcycles. The new bikes, which we’ve named ‘William’ and ‘Sir Ken’ in recognition of William (founder of Morrisons and his son Ken who chaired the supermarket), will enable our volunteers to provide a reliable service to the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance and the NHS throughout Lincolnshire.”
