Gosberton Ladies Circle has given its backing to a volunteer service transporting life-saving medical items to hospitals and clinics throughout Lincolnshire.

A gift of £150 was presented to Martin Wright, treasurer of Lincolnshire Emergency Blood Bikes Service, during a meeting of the Ladies Circle at Gosberton Methodist Church on Thursday.

Our goal is to expand the service and this gift will mean quicker response times to both Boston and Grantham hospitals

The service, known as Blood Bikes, has been operating in the county since April 2013 and volunteers work between 7pm and 7am at weekends and on bank holidays.

Mr Wright said: “Our goal is to expand the service and this gift will not only mean quicker response times to both Boston and Grantham hospitals but it will also mean that we are able to reach Grimsby Hospital as well using our Boston-based riders.”
