bloodbikesWe, Devon Freewheelers are a team of 50 volunteer Emergency Vehicle drivers who are dedicated to providing a weekday out of hours service (17.00 – 06.00) and 24/7 weekend service supporting the NHS in delivering essential Blood, Samples, Medication and Donor Breast Milk to hospitals throughout Devon.

Occasionally we are obliged to go out of county to Bristol and further afield to support the NHS. More recently, we even had two riders despatched to Great Ormond Street Hospital to complete a mission. Two riders? To ensure safe delivery we like to cover long trips with an additional rider in case of accident or unforeseen circumstances. In order to assess the REAL value of this FREE service you may like to read Felix’s Story a testimonial, voluntarily supplied.

Last year we undertook 2012 missions that saved lives by providing essential ‘supplies’ within strict time limits to enable our excellent doctors to complete their work.

This team is ably supported by a network of 30 volunteers providing call centre and essential fundraising support. Our annual budget is £150,000 which is essential in maintaining the fleet of 11 bikes and two Emergency All Terrain vehicles to the highest possible standards together with our modest HQ costs.

Consequently, the Fundraising Volunteers are an essential part of the team.

On this website, you will find details of the number of missions undertaken by month and YTD. There is also information about the vast number of fundraising events and of the wonderful and yet essential support we continue to enjoy throughout the County.

Thank you for taking the time to view our website. If you should like more information or feel that you would like to either Volunteer or contribute to the ongoing success of our team, please contact us here.
