Letter: Chance for a tea and biscuits donor

Sir: Yesterday I gave my four-monthly pint of blood. Everyone who is able should try to give at least once. It's neither painful nor nasty, and someone somewhere benefits.

Afterwards donors are offered tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits. I was surprised to learn that the blood donating and supply service pays for these out of its own funds. I'd like to encourage the giant food corporations to sponsor refreshments in blood-donor centres. It could only do their image good. I'm certain shareholders would approve of an annual report demonstrating such generosity to the community at large.
