Approx. 2 days per month: General Meetings and Committee Meetings are held monthly at two week separation, usually on a Thursday evening from 19:00 to 21:00; Trustees’ Meetings are held four times per year.
YFW requires a Secretary to join the Executive Committee to help us to ensure the general smooth running of the organisation, to organise meetings and to make sure that the administrative requirements of the Charities’ Commission are fulfilled.
YFW Blood Bikes is run by Yeovil Freewheelers (EVS), an Emergency Volunteer Service which supports Yeovil District Hospital, Dorset County Hospital and the community hospitals across our regions by providing emergency courier services for blood, platelets, blood and tissue samples, medication, breast milk, documents, X rays, CT scans, and equipment. We operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, probably saving the NHS over £200,000 a year while easing patients' suffering and helping to save lives. We are the oldest surviving blood bike group in the country, the two earlier groups having been forced to close through lack of funds some time ago. Last year we made over 2,000 urgent and emergency deliveries to hospitals, hospices, and nursing homes as well as private addresses across much of Somerset and all of Dorset.
