Volunteers Recognised in the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service

Blood Bikes Wales is a voluntary organisation which provides a free delivery service to the NHS delivering blood, samples, medicines, medical equipment, donated human milk, and other items across Wales and beyond.

The organisation has been honoured with the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK - The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service - which recognises outstanding work by volunteer groups to benefit their local communities.

The group has been especially recognised for its contribution during the pandemic.  

Nigel Ward, Chairman said, “2020 was an awful year for everyone and for charities, it's been very challenging.

"As a charity, we are fortunate that not only have we managed to keep going but the goals of this charity to help our NHS aptly fitted the circumstances we found ourselves in.

"I am absolutely delighted that the hard work and commitment of our volunteers has been recognised with this award.”
