Letter: Racecourse blood cost is just a charge too far

Having seen a recent article on charges made by venues against the Blood Donation Service, I was appalled to see that Doncaster Racecourse is one of the most expensive.

I am a regular blood donor and am blood group ORhNeg - or universal donor. Like all donors, I give my blood FREE.  
Do you not think that the Racecourse with all its diverse income streams could either drop the charges altogether or at least make them more reasonable?  Every member of your company is a potential recipient of our donations.
I’m considering contacting the Blood Donation service to refuse the Racecourse and will actively suggest all other donors boycott your venue if nothing is done to the benefit of this service.
I only live walking distance away from the Racecourse and am delighted with all the good stuff you do but now I know, this is a charge too far for me.
