Seascale residents are full to the brim with bacon butties after Blood Bike fundraiser’s success last Saturday.

The community turned out in full force to support Seascale Methodist Hall's annual event, raising over £900 for Blood Bikes Cumbria, and selling more than 130 bacon butties in just two hours.

The organisation’s brand new blood bike was on display outside the church hall throughout the event, reminding everyone present of the great work carried out by the volunteer Blood Bikers on a daily basis.

Anne-Marie Moffat, speaking on behalf of the local Blood Bike service, talked of the work the Blood Bikers do, and explained how important fundraising is for the service to keep the vital bikes on the road, and on their way to saving people’s lives. She went on to thank all those who went to the event for their support of Blood Bikes Cumbria.

Everyone at the event enjoyed asking volunteer Blood Bikers about their fantastic work, and, as expected by event organisers, Sellafield police showed their support for the cause by eating plenty of the delicious bacon butties on offer.

Commenting on the dedication and support from all those involved with the fundraising morning, a proud organiser of the event said: “The girls in the kitchen did a fabulous job cooking and serving over 130 bacon butties in two hours. All organisers would like to say a big thank you to those who came along, donated raffle and tombola prizes, and baked beautiful cakes for the cake stall.”

She continued: “Most importantly, thank you to the wonderful team of volunteers who worked together to run this event for our motorbike heroes, the Blood Bikers."
