The Big Co-Op Payout

Thank you to the Co-Op in Mildenhall who nominated SERV Suffolk and Cambridgeshire as their chosen charity for a second year (2020). When Co-Op members shop with any qualifying Co-Op store, 1% of what they spend on selected Co-op branded products and services goes to support local causes through thier Local Community Fund. You can use the link below if you want your 1% to support SERV Suffolk & Cambridgeshire. It costs just a £1 for you to join.

In 2019, we were delighted to receive an incredible £1467.19. Thank you.

We’ve reached 8000!

Unlucky for some but not SERV Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, on Friday 13th March 2020 we completed our 8000th task to date! The occasion was passed quietly but none the less a huge achievement for everyone involved acknowledging not just the 8000 milestone but every volunteer who helped us to get to that number since 2011. Thank you!

A huge thank you to BP Fuel

During the Covid-19 Virus BP Fuel have offered to provide fuel for all our liveried vehicles during the course of the pandemic together with other emergency service vehicles. Through BP’s own fuel cards and an arrangement with fuel card provider Allstar whose cards we use, they are allowing ambulance, fire, police service and Livieried Bloodbike Charity vehicles to fill up without being charged for the cost of fuel at BP’s network of 1,200 retail sites nationally wef 21st March. This very generous offer is much appreciated during a time when our fundraising activities have had to cease and is worth between £200 and £500 per month to SERV Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. We would like to thank BP Fuel for their support.

We are delighted to complete updating our fleet of liveried bikes with our fourth Yamaha FJR1300 purchased through the very generous donations from CCMC and the Ipswich Greyfriars Roundtable. These bikes are supplied to us by Yamaha fully liveried and with a rack tested to carry the weight of the precious cargo we deliver to our NHS Hospitals and milk banks.
The bike has gone into service immediately and will be based in the Ipswich area.

Applegreen

Huge thanks to the staff at Applegreen and Kate’s Cabin on the A1 at Peterborough. With the help of their generous customers who regularly donate to SERV Suffolk and Cambridgeshire they sponsor one of our bloodbikes. Their donations pay for the fuel used by this bloodbike which is based in the Peterborough area and used to transport blood, blood products, samples and donated breast milk.

They also recently spent a whole week ‘cycling’ from John O’Groats to Lands End raising an incredible £2810.00
