A much-needed Bloodmobile donated to Uganda by the National Health Service Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) department has been loaded by SCH in Southampton.


The second hand vehicle was shipped to Durban for onward transit to Uganda on the Hoegh Autoliners vessel Hoegh Tracer after being handed over by the NHS as part of its campaign to encourage blood donation in Africa.


The bloodmobile was among more than 1,000 cars, commercial vehicles and heavy plant loaded on the Hoegh Tracer in Southampton and SCH Director Lee Davis explained: “We were delighted to play our part in this important shipment by the NHSBT which will clearly make a significant contribution to encouraging blood donation in Africa.”
