My story

[p]So I have always wanted to be a blood biker on my retirement but the COVID crisis has made me reflect on on that timeline. I have been training for the Advanced Institute Motoring qualification for motorcycles for a little while now. This is needed, quite rightly, before you can be a Volunteer Blood Biker. Family events and bad luck have delayed that a little and so I have now to be patient until post COVID [/p][p]Grandad Budd drove ambulances during the blitz Grandad Coombes was a medic with the Royal Artillery in WWII so it may be in the blood! Pun very much intended! [/p][p]For now I can run and want to help this great organisation. Most work is overnight when one transfer might cost the NHS £700. They are great people.[/p][p]Please help however you feel able.[/p][p]Thanks. Mike 😁 [/p][p]Update 22/5/20[/p][p]So I am also aiming for 75k for May for VE day and am pleased to report I am, as of this evening, at the 54K point. This leaves me 11K to knock off next week before 10K at the weekend as a finale for this sponsorship. It has been tough training through the heat of the last 2 weeks and have had a CV19 scare(fortunately false alarm) in the family too which knocked a hole in the training last week as we isolated. [/p][p]I am very grateful for those who either have sponsored or have committed and lack the technology. Your collective support has been immense. [/p][p]Stay safe all[/p][p][br][/p][p]Mike :-)[/p][p][br][/p]
