    The Cinnamon Trust are brilliant. We use them a lot. Pets do matter to people, as Tink says, especially those who live alone.

    Could anyone please tell me if they're ever likely to lift the ban on people donating who've previously had a transfusion? I've got a rare blood group but can't donate due to post op transfusions in the 80s.

Well done to Steve for posting his real name and organisation. This forum has some fantastic posters, however angry and fed up and tired they may be. I struggle with being hated for wearing a suit, I am not a heartless b*tch who enjoys cutting staff. I always fight for more and listen. Which makes me unpopular with the other suits. But then this isn't a popularity contest.
