    Yeovil Freewheelers

    The Yeovil Freewheelers are an invaluable group of volunteer emergency bike riders operating throughout Yeovil, Dorchester, Taunton and Wincanton Hospitals. The service they provide means that blood supplies are at those hospitals when they are needed, this they all do free-of-charge.
Yeovil Freewheelers, also known as YFW Blood Bikes, are a group of emergency bikers who operate through Dorchester, Yeovil, Taunton and Wincanton.

They are a group of volunteer bikers who ensure that blood, and lots of other supplies are delivered to hospitals, hospices, nursing homes and even private addresses quickly so they really provide an invaluable service.

The YFW were founded in 1978 by Mr Cecil Turner, and have now been running for over 40 years, making them the oldest operational Blood Bike group in the country, and they are available whenever they are needed 365 days a year.

Because they are volunteers this means they do all of this completely free of charge, and rely solely on donations.

At Howards, we are only too happy to be able to help raise some awareness for this really worthwhile cause. Not only that but we also have a team from Howards who will be taking part in the Weston-Super-Half to help us raise some money for the YFW to enable them to carry on their amazing work.

So, if you are down at the Weston-Super-Half on Sunday 14th May look out for, Kieran Smith, Tom Bieda, Tom Newman, Daniel Pimm, James Minhinnick, Jacob Hollings, Lewis Hughes, Ashley Wilson and Tony Nichols who will raising as much as they can! 

If you would like to help support this cause then please find Kieran or another member of the team taking part who have their sponsorship forms with them!

  • Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows Howard Garages (Weston) Ltd to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.

    We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
