17 Week Premature Baby Caitlin


We never know who will receive the blood or donated breast milk. But, recently at the Royal Norfolk Show in June we were approached by young parents with their baby.


The mother had to search us out when she saw we were there. A very emotional and grateful parents gave us the news that Caitlin, their daughter was born in January 2016, 17 weeks premature and needed 21 blood transfusions to survive. Without our help in delivering the extra blood needed, she wouldn't be here today. It was very emotional for us and brought home that what we do can and does save lives. We've been looking for name for our latest car and it will now be named Caitlin, in her honour.

Provincial Freemasons of Norfolk


At their annual meeting in Norwich the Provincial Grand Master of Norfolk, Stephen Allen announced that his charity for this year will be SERV Norfolk Blood Bikes. The charity collection from that meeting and the proceeds from the Christmas draw will all be donated and he encouraged the lodges to donate money this year to his appeal. He hoped there would be enough money donated so that a bike could be purchased before Christmas.


After the meeting Stephen went out and tried one of our current bikes for size.

The Red Army



On 29th October we held a celebration in the Holiday inn at the airport in aid of the runners who ran for us in the Run Norwich 10km race and raised a whopping £34,500 for us. They wore red running tops and were known as the Red Army. We bought a new motorbike, a BMW F800GT from the money raised and was unveiled by Sophie Getts, one of the runners. The bike is called Red Army.

Christmas came early!

Christmas in Lowestoft



Christmas came early when Shaun Green, Motability Manager at Beactive in Lowestoft handed over to Sally and Shaun of SERV Norfolk – the Blood Bikes a Christmas bonus.


Beactive Mobility have been supporting SERV Norfolk in 2017 and raised over £600. The Christmas bonus came from Customers and Staff donating cash, in lieu of sending unnecessary Christmas Cards – thanks to everyone who contributed.


Beactive Directors, David and Jan Smith, who employ 17-staff in their four stores are keen to support the SERV charity and will continue their fundraising in 2018. It was commented, that although Beactive’s contribution is modest, compared with organisations that are able to fund new vehicles, it helps keep the Blood Bikes on the road in supporting running costs and without the vital fuel there would be no Blood Bikes providing this essential service to the people of Norfolk.

The team were out again this year supporting the Hospital charity and promoting awareness of our services to the Hospital. It is always a good event to be at and this year was no different. We had several enquiries from members of staff and visitors; handed out plenty of cakes and sweets, stickers and colouring pictures, and overall had a lot of fun during the afternoon.
