    Support Blood Bikes 4 Pets

    Blood Bike 4 Pets (www.bloodbikes4pets.org) aims to become the UK's first uniformed fast response motorcycle team dedicated to delivering life-saving blood to veterinary surgeries. But they need your support to make this vision a reality. Tom, who once led the charge in reuniting lost pets with their families, now leads this endeavor as the principle response rider. With the launch of this incredible project, Tom's unique strengths will be harnessed in a way that doesn't require much talking.

    The core of this initiative is to provide a rapid and reliable blood delivery service for our beloved pets. These motorcycles will speedily transport blood to veterinary surgeries, ensuring that our furry friends receive the blood they need. Ultimately, with your help the deliveries will be free of charge for owners. Allowing them to spend the vital funds on the care of their pet.

    Tom Had the emergency type stickers put on the Honda by PVL UK at his own cost - £500

    It shouldn't be overlooked that Tom and his team have use of a motorcycle that is pictured. This is a Honda Africa Twin and is all thanks to Honda Motorcycles who heard about Tom's mission and loaned the machine to the organisation for a year free of charge. Running costs and purchase of the bike at the end of that period, will be significant so every penny really does count.

    Pictured: Warren Edwards will be a volunteer rider as often as possible.

    Now, the call is for you to join Tom and the team in this noble journey. Your support will help cover the costs of fuel, contribution towards motorcycles, safety clothing and the associated logistical expenses.

    But the vision doesn't stop here. The long-term plan is to establish ten motorcycle stations at strategic locations throughout the UK. This network will allow for a fast, safe, and professional delivery service, ensuring that pets in every corner of the country have access to the quick life-saving support they deserve.

    Let's rally together and ensure that Tom's vision to serve our four-legged friends becomes a reality. Your generous support will not only help save the lives of pets but also honour Tom's unwavering spirit and determination. Join us in making the UK a better place for pets and their families. Your contribution can make all the difference.

    Visit www.bloodbikes4pets.org today and be a part of this heartwarming mission. Together, we can make a real impact in the lives of pets and their loving families. Whilst we haven't got charitable status yet, we are applying at this moment. Tom has set this up on a not for profit basis in the meantime.

      Hello everyone, We went to the NEC bike show. We have got interest from about 8 lady riders and a couple of gents. I'm keen to recruit female riders as I thing on the whole they are less bonkers and its a bit quirky to have a majority female team too. Each applicant will be given a fair crack of the whip though. If you are able to kickstart our funds by sharing this page I'll be very grateful. For those of you that haven't seen it... here's a video telling my story. Finally. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for helping so far. Tom xx.
