Well I've just come back from my 5th Blood Donor session! For many years I never did this, the mere thought of it was absolutely awful; my blood was very precious to me and didn't really want to loose it.
But it's very precious to somebody else as well. somebody quite probably in a far worse state than me. I can make more it; they might be alive to.
The worse part of donating yet hasn't happened yet... later on this evening I need to take the plaster from my arm. Now that is going to hurt!!!
Some people can't give blood, and for some it is quite a shock to the system. But if you then I would really urge you to do so. If you look on the National Blood Donation website you can see the level of blood stocks.
For some types that is just a few days and at the best 11 days. That is hardly anything at all......
As it says in the adverts "Do something amazing today".
