Presenter takes to the road to say thanks to the NHS

Steve with his blood bikeA Radio Clatterbridge presenter has taken to the road to say thank you to the NHS.

Steve Lord signed up to join the Blood Bikes network after being treated for prostate cancer earlier this year.

The Teatime Show host and former station chairman applied to one of the Cheshire-based charities after answering an appeal for advanced riders during a presentation to Wirral Advanced Motorcyclists.

It provides free out of hours emergency support to the NHS by transporting anything from blood, samples and vaccines to donor breast milk if they are needed urgently by hospitals at night, weekends and bank holidays.

He has already done his first shift and had his first call out for the Countess of Chester Hospital.

Steve was diagnosed with prostate cancer earlier this year and says he is feeling weekly improvements since undergoing treatment.

He also decided to share his story on a number of other radio stations to encourage other men to get themselves checked.

"It was time to give something back to the NHS." - Steve Lord, presenter

Steve says saying thank you to the health service was his motivation for joining the blood bike team.

He is now even considering joining the blood bike charity which serves Clatterbridge and has been a regular benefactor of the Wirral Tribute Egg Run.
