Regeneron made the donation of the caddy to Blood Bike Mid-West

A VOLKSWAGEN Caddy, donated by Limerick-based pharmaceutical firm Regeneron, will help a charity continue to deliver vital medical supplies across the Mid-West this winter.

Thanks to the donation, Blood Bike Mid-West, a charity transporting samples and medical equipment to and from hospitals, hospices and patients by motorbike, will now be able to continue to operate at full capacity when the weather makes transport by bike unsafe. 

“We would like to thank everyone at Regeneron who made this happen, especially David Considine and Elaine O'Connell (volunteers and Regeneron employees who proposed the donation),” Blood Bike Mid-West chairman Brendan Caffrey said. 

“On behalf of everyone here in Blood Bike Mid-West, thank you.” 

“Like Regeneron, the blood bike group is dedicated to ‘doing well by doing good’ and making a difference in people’s lives,” Regeneron employee and volunteer Elaine O’Connell said.

“I love the connection I have with changing patients’ lives as a Blood Bike Mid-West fundraiser and as a Regeneron employee.”
