I am a regular blood donor and the National Blood Service is (mostly through their own fault, cos they’re not very well organised) drastically under supplied.
There’s you an me on our bikes and we’re prime candidates to need it from time to time. Then there’s anyone with kidney problems, cancer, blood problems, and even those giving birth all of whom need pints and pints of the stuff…
Not sure if I’m doing a good job of selling this, but anyway, here’s the idea - If we can generate enough interest and prove that enough people would be willing to give a pint of claret if they showed up, we can arrange a donor truck to appear, at either Cubana, Ace Cafe, the Tea Hut on Blackheath or wherever we wanted. Obviously I would need to confirm that we were allowed to park it where we wanted, but that’s my responsibilty later to arrange. First I need to prove to the Blood Servive that a valid number would definitely donate before they’ll even think about coming out.
YOUR RESPONSIBILITY IS AS FOLLOWS: I need you all to let me know if you would be prepared to donate?
The ONLY snag is, DO NOT say yes if you think you wouldn’t do it on the day. We need only 100% firm commitments ok. Sorry to sound official and boring, but its a big ask to sort out, so we do need to be certain before we go ahead with this.
Right that’s the idea, here’s my last chance to sell it to you lot. Er…please think about this seriously. Its a really good idea, its great for the soul cos you feel all warm and smug when you’ve done it, you might one day benefit from your own blood and the most important reason of all…if you don’t I’m going to arm Barro and his mates with baseball bats and they’re going to come and convince ya for me…then you’ll wish you had already donated… Just kidding.
Reply on this thread or to me on a PM please if you’re up for it please! 100% definite donors only. And bear in mind, it doesn’t have to just be us. If your mate who doesn’t ride wants to donate, tell him yes he can and let me know, but again firm commitments only please.
WE NEED NUMBERS HERE GUYS…Its up to you now. Ta,
