A motorbike has been handed over to a medical charity, named in honour of one of its volunteers.
Martin Dixon was an established member of Cleveland and North Yorkshire Blood Bikes. The charity is part of a network around the country, which delivers blood for the NHS out of hours.
Mr Dixon died last November after a road accident in Hartlepool, which happened while he was on his way to pick up samples.
Since then, his family has collected £16,500 from a series of fund raising events, including coffee mornings and raffles. That money has been used to buy a new bike, bringing the organisation's fleet to five. Additional money has been donated to cover the bike's running costs for around two years.
The bike was handed to the charity at a ceremony in Billingham this weekend. Mr Dixon's son, also called Martin, says it is a fitting tribute to his father.
Cleveland and North Yorkshire Blood Bikes covers an area from Peterlee to Northallerton. It frequently links up with neighbouring branches, in order to transport samples around the region, and the country. The aim is to reduce costs on the NHS, because the blood is transported free of charge.
Trustee Anthony Finegan says the new bike will be a huge benefit to the charity and ultimately, to patients.
The new bike, which is inscribed with Martin's name, will be out and about, helping to save lives, in the coming days.
