DFW are a group of advanced riders who have come together to offer their time, skills and expertise, free of charge to provide an out of hours emergency response courier service to the NHS. This service is provided at no cost to the patient or the hospital that has requested our assistance.
They do not receive any payments from the patient or hospital that has requested their assistance, nor do they receive any funding from any source for the service. All costs in providing the service have been covered by public donation or corporate sponsorship, shaking and rattling tins on street corners in their spare time, or even on occasion.
Most of the Devon Freewheelers work full time jobs during the day, then in the evening they stand by their machines, ready and willing to take the call that may take them off into the night in all weather conditions to save a life. Their Motto is 'Riding for Life', someone else's.
