We provide an out of hours service between 17:00 and 07:00 Monday to Friday and 24 hour weekend and bank holiday cover motorcycle courier service to the NHS hospitals right across Devon. When the NHS courier service finishes for the days Volunteers step in to provide a service transporting much needed medical items.

On the 11th July 2013 we received the Exeter Lord Mayor’s Commendation in-recognition of our outstanding and valuable service to the community.

The 2015 annual Pride of Exeter awards held on the 21st Nov at Sandy Park in Exeter we were nominated for the Charity of the Year.

Our Mission

We are a group of advanced riders who have come together to offer our time, skills and expertise, free of charge to provide an out of hours emergency response courier service to the NHS. This service is provided at no cost to the patient or the hospital that has requested our assistance. We do not receive any payments from the patient or hospital that has requested our assistance, nor do we receive any funding from any source for the service. All costs in providing the service have been covered by public donation or corporate sponsorship, shaking and rattling tins on street corners in our spare time, or even on occasion, we have put the fuel into the tank ourselves. We do this knowing that the beneficiary of our service will more than likely never know of our existence nor involvement in their recovery process, they will probably never meet us, and we rarely ever meet them. Most of us work full time jobs during the day, then in the evening we stand by our machines, ready and willing to take the call that may take us off into the night in all weather conditions to save a life. Our Motto is ‘Riding for Life’, some one else’s.
