Hello, this month we are planning our new projects for the year - buying new
machinery to upgrade our workshop to be able to cope with the heavy demands we
put on it; putting the finishing touches to our small crafts section providing a
comfortable area for those members who want to do the more desk-oriented crafts;
and, planning the financing for re-roofing our wood store which still seems to get
damp although we thought we had sealed it late last year.
This morning, 23rd Jan, we were very grateful to receive a brand new defibrillator
from a charity that supports local organisations. The HeartCare Cardiac Support
Group is a local Lowestoft based charity providing support, advice and equipment to
communities and organisations to enable them to support sufferers from heart
disease. They meet socially every 2nd Tuesday at 7.30 pm in the Victoria Hotel in
Lowestoft and would welcome anyone who wishes to support their efforts. Our
defibrillator was presented to us by Shane & Colin Finch
who are committee members of the charity. Many thanks to the charity for their very

Blood Bike Presentation
14th August 2018
e-mail from SERV to HeartCare
Hi Mary and All at Waveney Heart Care CSG,
Sorry for the tardy reply but the world of Blood Bikes has had a very busy three weeks,
Starting with myself and Bill along with a few others arranging and managing our runners in the Norwich 10k road race, the presentation of Heartie to us by your good selves and culminating with the 100 mile cycle ride round North of Norfolk today in which I, several other members and friends took part.
Firstly I would like to express my personal thanks and thanks on behalf of SERV NORFOLK for your "Life Changing" donation to us of the BMW F800 GT which you unveiled and named HEARTIE for us last Tuesday. She is going to make such a difference to us being new and more reliable than some of our older members of the fleet, thereby helping to save or improve the quality of live for those less well than ourselves,
So where is SERV going now:
We will have our AGM shortly in mid-September where the future of the fleet replacement will be a top discussion point with the membership being tasked to come up with ideas to raise funds.
As you know only too well the bikes aren't cheap with the BMW 800 being about £9000, the Yamaha 1300 being about 18000 and the BMW 1200 being in the region of 18 to 20000.
We still have a long way to go.
SERV Norfolk is also actively trying to facilitate the launching of a "hub system" for Donor Breast Milk, whereby all the DBM will be collected and stored at a central point and collected and delivered from there. We have the premises but this will need a dedicated refrigerated vehicle to be shared around the East of England Groups. More fund raising!
Finally I know we know will are getting a team together to try and obtain some corporate sponsors in the world of bike and car maintenance to bring our costs down as much as we can.
Just a short report so that you can tell your members what we're up to.
A massive thank you once again and I am very proud to have met you all, realise your request to donate us a new bike and for me to be able to be at the unveiling and ride her away.
"Just remember No matter how wet, cold or tired we are. We know that if we are out someone is having a far worse time than we are.... And that is why we are Blood Bikers"
