It followed an appeal the Province launched last year to raise enough money within 12 months to buy one new bike for SERV.
Only nine months later, and masons presented SERV with not one, but three new motorcycles. The volunteers will now use these Blood Bikes to transport blood, plasma, platelets, samples, vaccines, donor breast milk and other urgently required medical items to hospitals and the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
Norfolk Freemasons raised the money for the bikes, which cost £15,000 each, at lodge meetings, social events and auctions, and from personal donations. The Dean of Norwich, the Very Reverend Jane Hedges, performed a blessing during the presentation.
The three new bikes are called Faith, Hope and Charity.
