In 2009, 2.1 million blood donations were collected from 1.6 million donors in England. While the figures may appear to be large, this only represents 4% of the population.

In England, around 8,000 blood transfusions are carried out every day. Therefore, the need for blood donations remains high.

The NHS do not allow gay men to donate blood if they have had anal or oral sex with another man in the last 12 months. People are dying everyday because there isn't enough blood being donated, less and less people

78% of gay men have said they WOULD donate blood if it was possible, this would save so many lives, increase the amount of donations by so many!

Let gay men donate blood and start saving lives!
