The life-saving Highland charity is hoping whisky galore can give it a fundraising boost.

Highland and Islands Blood Bikes (HAIBB), which transports blood supplies and Covid samples across the region on behalf of NHS Highland, is on the hunt for donations of Scotland’s national drink.

They plan to sell them off in a seven-day online auction run by Speyside Whisky Auctions from January 26.

Chairman Mark Mcginty, said: “Winter time for us can be particularly challenging. The service is people-led and we have an infrastructure in place that works, but income-wise we always need more.”

The charity is also on the look-out for more volunteers which will fill a variety of roles from social media to riders.

All positions will be given full training.

To donate to the whisky auction email fundraising@haibloodbikes.co.uk.
