Thumbs up Do something amazing, Give Blood

@ 75 I get a free night out


BLOOD DONONATIONS not my age

been doing since I was the legal age to do so

I took to it as I was racing motorcycles @ the time so figured I may need it sometime. But as things panned out I didn't and haven't. But next week I may. You never know.

do you donate?

YOU KNOW IT MAKES SENSE so if you don't pop along and have a go. It doesn't hurt honest. Worst I've had was a tingle in the arm when they touched a nerve.

if not why not ?

You may need it or have had the need in the past.

So if you've had to receive and your feeling more grumpy than usual you may have some of my bad blood in you

I'm up to my 29th donation now - 30 in a few weeks time.

No excuse (unless a medical one) not to do it. It takes an hour at most and can save a life - you never know when it could be you OR a member of your family that needs to be on the receiving end.......

And it doesn't hurt - all you feel is a scratch which is no worse than we all get from time to time.

Just do it.

went last night, took 1 hour turn around as I didn't book a timed slot and that included a 10 min walk either way plus a cuppa coffee & biscuits, tea or juice if you prefer

pic of my arm is after 17hrs after the event

worst part is pulling the plaster of, it removes a few of those little hairs

I used to give all the time back at university - but I can't give any more in the UK or the USA after having malaria a few times in Africa... Quite annoying, really.

I remember we used to get free t-shirts and tickets to the zoo in San Diego for giving - as well as doughnuts and orange juice... Pretty good deal, really!

tymill, your location says London, and I presume you are into off road? Did you know we have the Nation Series coming to Eden Park in Croydon this weekend????

Come along and watch the circus, haha.

Oh, and things have changed ALOT as far as donating is concerned, it may be worth checking to see if things in the past that stopped you giving are now different

That's what I thought - but at my last donation I found out that it goes up to something like a maximum of 12 pints for those of us who are "a little larger than average".......
