Team Luke’s Legacy’s story

Luke Van de Sande PC25494 of Staffordshire Police sadly lost his life in a motorbike accident on 27th August 2019 whilst off duty. He was an amazing person, funny, mischievous, caring, and a great Police Officer.

Luke knew about the Docbike Project and was Interested in their work. We are raising funds to get a Docbike in Staffordshire as

“Luke’s Legacy”


All funds raised will be passed to the charity irrespective of whether my target is reached, not reached or exceeded.

DocBike

We love riding motorcycles! The freedom that riding a bike gives, whilst reducing the impact on the environment and easing traffic congestion means that in today’s society riding bikes makes absolute sense.


But we’re an at risk group. Motorcyclists account for 1% of the miles driven on the UK roads, but we make up 25% of the critical injuries and 25% of the deaths.


The DocBike charity uses a high profile medical professional (air ambulance doctor or similar) on an emergency motorcycle to provide roadside critical care, but at the same time engage with motorcyclists to raise awareness of

  • What it is that most commonly leads to a motorcyclist being involved in a collision;
  • What motorcyclists can do to avoid it and
  • Through teaching on BikerDown courses, how to keep a fallen biker alive whilst waiting for the ambulance to arrive.

Our goal is simple. To eradicate all motorcycle deaths and dramatically reduce the number of motorcyclists who are critically injured on our roads in the UK


  


Our income is solely from donations coming from bikers at the roadside, local businesses, bike groups or philanthropic organisations.


In setting up the project, we’ve been dependent upon the good will of others.


We're already delivering great results in terms of helping National organisations to focus on reducing motorcycle collisions, but we want to do more.


Our plan is to expand the DocBike project Nationally, but to do so costs £40,000 for each area:

  • £16,500 for a new BMW RTP Motorcycle
  • £20,000 for an IP66 rated compact critical care monitor
  • £1,000 for other medical equipment (including a defibrillator)
  • £2,000 for the rider’s leathers, helmet, gloves, boots and other PPE
  • £500 for leaflets, cards, promotional flags and collapsible tables etc. for engagement.

We want to use the medical expertise of the air ambulance clinicians to make a difference at the roadside when a biker crashes, but also to use the appeal of the air ambulance to engage with motorcyclists


We want to eradicate all motorcycle deaths across the UK…..


But we need your help to do it! 


Please give what you can.   Thank-you!

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
