A Bike for Simon

In June 2019 Simon Palmer, Dad, husband, son, brother and our dear friend was sadly killed in a motorbike accident.

In Simon’s memory we are raising funds to purchase a motorbike for Blood Bikers, a voluntary organisation that provides a FREE out of hours medical transportation service to the National Health Service delivering blood and other medical supplies.


This service literally saves lives, and benefits the NHS considerably each year, by making no charge for over 75,000 deliveries a year for things like blood (red cells), platelets, plasma, serum, surgical instruments, patient’s notes, X-rays, Human donor milk and MRI scans.

Their motto "We might be having the ride of YOUR life"

If we reach our target of £15,000 a bike can be purchased and named after Simon.

We are hoping Simon’s friends and colleagues consider this a fitting tribute. Please donate whatever you can as every penny will help us towards our target of putting a new bike on the road in Simon's memory. If you donate, when you see a Blood Bike you can perhaps think of Simon and smile as you know he would have wanted, knowing that you may have helped fund a life saving delivery for the NHS.

Many thanks for your kind donations. We will keep the site updated with progress and hopefully with the final presentation of the bike to the charity. Note all donations go directly to the charity in any event.
