I’ll mortgage Necker to save Virgin Atlantic says Richard Branson.

Richard Branson is prepared to mortgage his luxury Caribbean island to save Virgin Atlantic which has run into difficulties because of the downturn in passenger traffic due to coronavirus.

He made a recent impassioned plea in an open letter to secure a state loan that could save Virgin Atlantic – this included the offer to mortgage Necker.

It just shows that as he approaches his 70th birthday a true entrepreneur never lets go or gives up when his lifes work is at risk!

He also used the letter to respond to criticism about his decision to sue the NHS in 2016 when he missed out on an £82 million contract to provide health services in Surrey.

He was awarded an undisclosed sum by the NHS which Virgin Care claimed had been handed back to the NHS.
