B Positive choir
The B Positive choir, created by NHS Blood and Transplant, is made up of people whose lives are affected by the lifesaving power of blood. Our members include blood donors and blood recipients, people who have blood related medical conditions such as sickle cell, our families, friends and people who work with blood.
Update The choir, NHS Blood and Transplant and all those who knew Simonne Kerr are devastated about her death. She was a valued and respected member of the B Positive choir who was passionate about the lifesaving power of blood donation following the loss of her son, Kavele. The choir continues to campaign for blood donation in memory of Simonne.

The B Positive choir wants to inspire more people to join the 6,000 daily donors who save lives and keep this country going. We need 700 new donors every day to donate blood to help ensure patients in need receive the best possible match. Rise up and register to donate now.
Your response so far has been fantastic. Please make a booking to donate later this year if you can't get a slot soon. We are having to carefully balance our stock of blood groups. Find out more about our need for specific blood groups.
The choir inspired everyone in the final of this year's Britain's Got Talent on ITV1
After making it through to the final of #BGT as the wildcard act for 2018, the B Positive Choir inspired everyone with their rendition of 'Rise Up'.
The choir pass on their thanks: "Thank you to everyone who has supported us on this journey, we couldn't be more grateful! Now, do your bit and get your blood donation booked!"
They have continued their campaign by taking part in NHS70 celebrations on BBC Breakfast as well as the NHS Windrush 70 event in Manchester and festivals around the country.
