Q Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Blood Bikes Q Free Q All year Q Var­i­ous lo­ca­tions Q www.then­ If you’ve ever fan­cied us­ing your bike to do good then vol­un­teer­ing with SERV (Ser­vice by Emer­gency Rider Vol­un­teers), who col­lab­o­rate with the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Blood Bikes, is one won­der­ful way to go.

I spent an evening with our lo­cal group, SERV Suf­folk and Cam­bridgeshire (, and like oth­ers across the country, they of­fer an out-of-hours courier ser­vice to hos­pi­tals. You only need com­mit to a cou­ple of shifts a month and a lit­tle fundrais­ing, so it’s not a great drain on your time and you never know when you just might need their help.

Join­ing cri­te­ria dif­fers from re­gion to re­gion, you may be re­quired to un­der­take a rid­ing as­sess­ment or be ac­cred­ited with ei­ther ROSPA or the IAM – ob­vi­ously you have to prove you are a de­pend­able char­ac­ter.
