Here at Derbyshire Blood Bikes, we like to give our volunteers and supporters a chance to raise vital funds in a fun way with a motorcycling theme.
In 2018 we had the The Solstice Challenge. A group of volunteers and fundraisers travelled to the glorious Welsh seaside town of Aberystwyth on Saturday 23rd June. After seeing the sun drop beyond the horizon of the Irish Sea, they made the 300 mile journey across country to Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, all to raise much needed funds for Derbyshire Blood Bikes. Of course the aim was to raise funds through participation and raised over £6,000.
Included in this event was the ‘Ride on Jamie’ appeal in memory of Jamie Henshaw was one of our fundraisers from Ilkeston. His family raised around £2,500 towards their campaign, which reached its target in super-quick time by October and funded a new BMW F800GT.
Congratulations to all those fundraisers!
So what will we be doing in 2019?
Look out for details of our 2019 Event, due to be launched soon!
