I’m an Australian who, like so many other people around the world, lived in the UK for more than six months between 1980 and 1996 and now cannot donate blood. The effect of bovine spongiform lives on.
I would love to be able to share my blood as would every ex-pat I’ve spoken to.
Current figures indicate a 23% drop in blood donation in the UK.
I am hoping that it would be feasible for Virgin Atlantic to set aside some space on each flight to transport our blood back to the UK and the people who need it.
Thank you for reading.
