Recipient Org: Description Yeovil Freewheelers are the longest continuing blood bike group in the country. The group provides an out-of-hours delivery service for hospitals in South Somerset and adjascent counties and has, in the last twelve months, made over 800 deliveries either to or from local hospitals or from local hospitals to private individuals or nursing homes or hospices. The group operates three bikes from Yeovil District Hospital and, apart from the use of a garage at the hospital, is entirely dependant upon funds raised locally or nationally. All staff are voluntary and take no renumeration . It is estimated that the group saves Yeovil District Hospital alone in excess of £80.000 per annum in transport costs. All riders have to be fully trained and are re-assessed on an annual basis. Bikes are, where possible replaced every three years.
