Today, I donated blood for the 20th time. However; in the past, I have not been as frequently as I could.
After the recent birth of my daughter, my wife required around four units of blood to help her get better. This made me realise how important giving blood is, so I now make sure that I go as much as I am allowed – which is up to four times a year for males, three if you are female.
I find giving blood satisfying as I know it is going to help someone who needs the blood more than I.
The process is quite quick and relatively painless and you get a cuppa and a biscuit after you donate!
