Hazlewoods current charity of the year
Severn Freewheelers was a clear favourite for the charity of the year in 2020, with 52% of Hazlewoods staff vote.
The charity provides a free out-of-hours courier service for hospitals across Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, North Wiltshire, and Herefordshire, carrying blood, pathology samples, patient scans/x-rays, human milk and other medical essentials.
The experienced volunteer motorcycle riders all hold an advanced riding qualification and work from 7pm to 7am during the week and all day at weekends and public holidays.
Severn Freewheelers require approximately £70,000 per annum to run their service and they estimate that this saves the NHS in excess of £450,000, so any support they receive really is helping to save lives.
