Our StoryThe Bloodfast Emergency Volunteer Service (EVS) was established in Hull in 2007, to assist the local NHS trust with the carriage of urgent medical supplies vital to patient care, using motorcycles. The service was offered free of charge on a charitable basis.
At the same time JS Logistics run by John Spinks, was offering services to the NHS in Hull as an emergency courier. Raising the funds to maintain Bloodfast EVS as a charity was difficult and time consuming. John Spinks and the original members of Bloodfast EVS decided to amalgamate the two organisations and, form Bloodfast EVS LTD as a not for profit company.
Made in Hull Award
Thanks to its reputation for service the company continued to expand. In 2014 it was recognized for its work within the community at Hull business week winning the inaugural “Made in Hull for the People of Hull” award.
In 2015 we were runners up in the same award category. We also had to move to new larger premises in Cottingham on the north western outskirts of Hull.
We now number 14 full and part time staff, and several volunteers. Of the original members of the company only two remain, John Spinks as the Operations Director and senior partner in the company and Sue Thompson who runs the office.
Also staffing the office is Johns daughter Olivia, this family theme runs through the drivers too, Callum.The son of Chaz Carling one of the other directors works for us. We hope that these family connections will bode well for the future of the company.
