Honda donates VFR800X Crossrunner to charity

North West Honda Blackpool has donated yet another Honda VFR800X Crossrunner to the North West Blood Bikes charity. Honda pledged to replace the bike every 12 months, or when it reaches 8,000 miles, whichever comes first.

‘Blood bikers’ – a.k.a. blood runners – are volunteer couriers who work outside normal business hours to deliver blood products, biopsy tissues and other medical samples between hospitals. Their mission: “To provide a free, but professional, voluntary out-of-hours transport service to our local NHS hospitals by carrying urgent and emergency blood, platelets, samples, donor breast milk, patient notes and theatre equipment – in fact anything that can be carried by motorcycle.”


They’re legends, basically. And if you’d like to become one yourself, or simply to donate to the cause, click here .
