Blood biker cel­e­brates sec­ond an­niver­sary

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

MO­TOR­CY­CLIST Paul Napier has cel­e­brated his sec­ond an­niver­sary as a vol­un­teer biker for Blood Bikes Wales.

Paul is the re­tail branch man­ager at Llanelli’s we­buyany­

To mark the oc­ca­sion, staff from the we­buyany­ Llanelli branch, along with Paul’s fel­low Blood Bike Wales vol­un­teer Pe­ter Moule, at­tended an event to mark the mile­stone.

Paul started vol­un­teer­ing for Blood Bikes Wales in June 2017, af­ter the char­ity helped to save his sis­ter-in-law’s life by de­liv­er­ing blood to a hos­pi­tal where she was be­ing treated. A keen biker, Paul saw an op­por­tu­nity to give back to the char­ity that had given so much to his fam­ily, whilst also be­ing able to help oth­ers in need.

Since start­ing as a vol­un­teer for the char­ity, Paul has vol­un­teered many hours, de­liv­er­ing vi­tal sup­plies to hos­pi­tals across Wales, mainly sup­port­ing hos­pi­tals in Swansea and Car­marthen­shire.

Run solely by vol­un­teers, Blood Bikes Wales op­er­ates all across the coun­try.

They work to sup­port the NHS, com­pletely free of charge, in de­liv­er­ing sup­plies in one of the quick­est ways pos­si­ble.

Richard Evans, head of tech­ni­cal ser­vices at we­buyany­ said: “Blood Bikes Wales is an in­cred­i­ble char­ity and we’re im­mensely proud of Paul and the bril­liant work he does to sup­port both the char­ity and the com­mu­nity.
