Would you like to volunteer?

We are always looking for volunteers to help with the service. If you can spare a little of your time then we would be pleased to welcome you to the group.

Help to fundraise

As you might have guessed the service cannot run without the money raised by our members, company donations, anonymous donations and, of course, you the generous public. Fund raising is perhaps the most important thing that we do. From shaking a tin to visiting big business to ask for sponsorship. At more than £12,000 to run our service for a year fund raising never stops.

Coordinating

Coordinators are a crucial component in our system. As a coordinator you take calls from hospitals and then relay the relevant information to the duty rider for him/her to be able to complete the task. The bulk of our work is early evening and weekends.  Coordinators run on a 12 hour shift system from 87am to 7 pm and 7pm to 7am the next day.  

Riders

Riders retain the bike at home whilst on duty, during which time he/she is responsible for any job that is called in. It is essential that you have somewhere safe to store the bike and be willing to ride in all weathers (except snow and ice, at your discretion). Before becoming a duty rider you will need to hold an advanced riding qualification (e.g. IAM or RoSPA). We also carry out our own assessment ride prior to you commencing riding for us and in addition provide an induction on the bikes and related equipment. Please note that due to a stipulation from our insurance company, you need to be aged 30 or over to ride our bikes.

Riders are expected to behave responsibly and courteously to other road users. Riders must wear a custom made Hi-Vis Jacket with an ID tag plus suitable safety clothing

We also operate a Blood Car which is used as part of a regular run to the Air Ambulance at RAF Cosford and the MERIT base in Oldbury.  The car is also crucial for our fundraising events as we have our gazebo, other equipment and merchandise that we need to transport.  To drive the car as part of the duty we need you to hold an advanced driving qualification such as IAM or RoSPA.  We also carry out our own assessments when a new member joins which is repeated every 2 years.

I am proud to be a member of Midland Freewheelers and get a great deal of satisfaction from a ‘job well done’. I know, as we all do at Midland Freewheelers, that our work is sometimes very urgent and sometimes very routine, but it is always important.
