Join me on Tuesday 21 June at 10am on Swindon 105.5 to hear from my friend and RoADAR colleague Mike Southgate as he talks to us about his time with the Swindon Freewheelers.

From their website:

Lifesaving Service 

Our service to the NHS is provided free of charge and is funded entirely by public donation and sponsorship. We transport blood, pathology & microbiology specimens, patient notes, X-rays, breast milk, and other medical supplies. In 2014, we made 3,648 deliveries, riding more than 120,000 miles. Freewheelers EVS operate a fleet of  motorcycles each equipped with high-visibility markings, blue lights and sirens for emergency use.  If our service did not exist hospitals would be forced to use taxis or commercial couriers. Freewheelers EVS is run entirely by volunteers. All our riders hold an advanced motorcycling qualification, such as the advanced riding test by RoSPA, or IAM. We also have a team of fund raisers and telephone co-ordinators.

See http://www.freewheelers.org.uk/ for more details of this valuable service.
