Clive Currington, 48, one of the earliest members of SERV Norfolk, better known as Norfolk Blood Bikes, died on Valentine’s Day.

He had volunteered to join before the organisation had even been properly launched.

His funeral will be held on Wednesday (March 6) when Norfolk Blood Bikes members will escort the funeral cortege from his parents’ home in Cambridge to the city’s crematorium.

SERV Norfolk’s Ian Grimes said: ““He was a gentle, really nice, genuine and quiet guy and a trusted rider and controller who always had your back when you were out in the middle of the night and knew the job inside out.”

Norfolk Blood Bikes is a charity run entirely by volunteers.

They transport blood, donated breast milk, lab samples & medical items for the NHS, free of charge.
