Our main expenditure involved in setting up the charity was the purchase of the very first motorbike / Blood Bike.
We are extremely grateful to Sean Lyons of Bluebird Care in Galway for providing the funding for this. Without his support and backing we would have been fundraising for several months before we could manage this.
Bluebird Care are the provider of a wide range of care services to people of all ages in their own homes. They have a growing network of offices throughout Ireland and work with private individuals, the HSE, GP's, Public Health Nurses and Social Workers.
Bluebird Care is a nationwide service.
