Calling all bikers and people who like their motors on two wheels – this is your chance to show your support for North West Blood Bikes at their first annual Scrabble Run.

This is guaranteed to be the most exciting twist on the board game classic as bikers go head-to-head across a 56 mile route collecting a letter from each of the 9 stops. The biker who makes the word with the most points at the end takes home the prize.

North West Blood Bikes provides vital support to hospitals and clinics across the region – transporting blood, breast milk for premature babies and other urgent medical equipment. With deliveries taking place out of hours, it helps to free up much-needed resources at our hospitals.

Since setting up in May, the charity’s volunteers have made over 220 lifesaving deliveries and will potentially save the local NHS tens of thousands of pounds in urgent transport bills carried out by taxis and private couriers.

NWBB recently gained a contract to provide this service to the Blackburn Royal Infirmary.

However, this service is reliant on volunteers and so all donations go towards covering the costs of fuel, bike maintenance and advanced training for riders.

The event, which is proudly hosted by Baxenden and District Motorcycle Club, hopes to raise money to keep the blood bikers on the roads serving hospitals and patients with vital supplies.

The run starts at 12:00pm on Saturday (6th October) from the Dog and Partridge pub, Back Lane, Baxenden. Riders will make their way around the set course before finishing back at the pub for approximately 5pm. The route is also 125cc friendly so most bikes can enter.

There is a minimum donation of £2 per rider to enter and all participants will receive goodie bags donated by Michelin Tyres and Jennings Racing Products as they stop off in Oswaldtwistle.

Live entertainment and a pie and pea supper will also be available later on at the Dog and Partridge.

To enter, or for more information, contact Gary on 07790215950, Derek on 07888703618, or look for “Baxenden and District MCC” on Facebook.
