Applegreen plc has announced that it will support Blood Bike Leinster by providing free fuel to their volunteers during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Blood Bike Leinster operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year delivering a confidential specialist medical logistical service to the HSE hospital groups, medical centres and hospices primarily in the Leinster region.
The Blood Bikes are now handling essential logistics in the fight against COVID-19 by providing transport for tests kits between test centres and the laboratories
“We are grateful to all healthcare workers, essential service providers, staff and suppliers at this difficult time, said Dáire Nolan, managing director for Ireland.
"We are proud to continue fuelling and supporting Ireland’s essential services through this pandemic.”
No Paid Staff
Blood Bike Leinster have no paid staff, all the team are volunteers who give their time freely to ensure the service keeps running, with every cent collected going directly back into the charity.
"Our deliveries have now trebled, and with no funding coming in and all events cancelled this has been a very worrying time for us," said Fergus Lennon, volunteer and director of Blood Bike Leinster.
"We receive no Government funding and rely solely on companies such as Applegreen and public donations to help us.”
