It’s not often the work by blood bikers nationwide is covered in the mainstream media, however BBC News recently talked about the invaluable service provided by our volunteers in their online magazine – have a read here! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-38330814
Following previous years’ involvement, SERV Surrey and South London were once again asked to provide an escort for the Cobham at Christmas Extravaganza and Lights Turn on and were only too happy to oblige. The event took place this year on 25th November and around ten SERV S&SL riders turned up for marshalling duties. The riders met beforehand at the Royal British Legion in Hollyhedge Road, Cobham, for a pre-event briefing before the procession .....read more.
Sunday, March 20 (Palm Sunday) saw some of our volunteer Bloodrunners ride out from New Malden to Evelina London Children’s Hospital.
