#BloodBikeDay 2015: Live Twitter chats and competition

The Blood Bikers are often described as ‘The Unseen Emergency Service’ and today, in partnership with O2, is the first annual Awareness Day for the charity.  As part of our on-going commitment to support the 1,500 volunteers, we’ve teamed up with the Blood Bikers to launch #BloodBikeDay.  Throughout the day we will be hosting live Twitter chats with the hashtag #BloodBikeDay to help people understand what the Blood Bikers, as a voluntary service, offers to the public, which could involve transporting vital blood, plasma, serum, x-rays, instruments, MRI scans and donated breast milk for premature babies between locations to where they are most needed.  There’s plenty happening today, from quizzes to games and a competition – you could be in with a chance of winning an England Rugby Shirt so you can #weartherose with pride or a shiny new Dell laptop.  Keep your eyes peeled on the @O2Businessuk twitter account as well as @O2Music.

We’ll be spending the day helping to raise awareness of the fantastic work the Blood Bikes do, encouraging people to get involved with their essential work.  Keep up-to-date with all of the latest news right here in our live blog, or you can follow the #BloodBikesDay hashtag on twitter to get involved.

From 3-4 PM, we’ll be hosting a Twitter chat with the Blood Bikers, who will be on hand to talk about their life-saving work and to answer any questions that you might have.

We’ve also created an interactive quiz that you can take to find out what sort of role might suit you. You don’t even need to be able to drive a motorbike – there are vacancies for all sorts of roles, including shift coordinators, fundraisers and social media marketers. Take the quiz below, and let us know your result!

Get involved with Blood Bikes Awareness Day by using the #BloodBikesDay hashtag and by joining in the fun. You can also follow @O2BusinessUK for further updates.
