Blood Bike West  Volunteer Bike Service providing a free service to the HSE in the West

Busy day yesterday for Ronan, Galway Hospice needed our help with samples, then in the evening an urgent call came in to move a packet to limerick maternity, we requested a link up with our friends in Blood Bike Mid West, Ronan headed to Gort to meet Ivor.

Our sean headed east this eveningto meet our friends in @BloodBikesEast Centra Kilbeggan for an urgent link up with a disc for Beaumont hospital.

Tonight at our all members meeting we said good luck to one of our stalwart members Sean Rima as he departs to pastures new. Blood Bike West is entirety made up of volunteers, we come from all walks of life, but one thing is for sure you walk in a stranger but you have friends for life. Best of luck Sean on your adventures from all your friends in Blood Bike West. A massive thank you to our own Robin for the wonderful cake and Myra's Cards for once again an amazing creation that will be cherished.

After a steady weekend we took an emergency call last evening for medication to be moved from portiuncla to st Vincent’s in Dublin, pictured is our rider with a very grateful ward sister @easytripservice

Dave O'Leary was out and about looking after the @galwayhospice yesterday with drops to multiple labs, it was also Sean Rima a.k.a hairy grumpy man last call on control for Bloodbike west!! He's moving east next week, very, very east........thanks sean!

Put this date in your diary, it promises to be a great night and all in aid of Blood Bike West.

Our rossa was doing the flamenco in the @galwayhospice car park on 1 of the many runs to the uchg labs, this morning we had to run up to mayo general as they needed us to get an urgent sample to temple street, @BloodBikesEast to helped us complete @NorthgateVHire

Blood Bike West now is in a position to offer a greater range of service to the local hospitals. We have obtained a new gyrocopter and several of our riders have taken their Private Pilots Licences. Our first unit is currently operated by Captains Mike Carty and Joe Lally

Wonder are there any Easter eggs in the box.... our volunteers are kept away from the eggs with multiple runs over the city for @galwayhospice with drops to various labs, we’re on cover until 7am on Tuesday morning, if you see any of our riders give them a wave!!

Some of our volunteers went to uchg today to deliver Easter eggs to the children’s ward, big thanks to David Greeley from Tempo Antiques and the Latin quarter for the eggs, however the Easter bunny seems to have changed since I was a child...😂 @NorthgateVHire

Lovely to see a picture of "Margaret" our newest Bloodbike, in the @galwayhospice newsletter. Happy and proud to be able to support the hospice in the great work they do! Could not place the whole photo due to Instagram limitations
