all the monies go to the needy and not to the organisation.  They match up volunteers with people who are in need.

Money will go to the upkeep of the bikes and the training of the drivers.  They deliver blood, donated organs, breast milk etc to the hospitals where they are needed

Thame and District Day Centre

the money will go towards trips out and extra comforts for their customers eg cushions and sherry before lunch (which aids the appetite)

Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance the money will go towards their future plans which include doctors on most flights, transporting blood and night flights
