Today was a joyous day!!
After two failed attempts last year, I had all but resigned myself to forever having low iron levels and never again being able donate blood, but today I returned once more to a donating session and reached above the magic 12.5 required – in fact, it was 14.1!!
Donating blood is so simple but so important. I met some ladies today who had returned to donate, having not done so for almost twenty years, because of the extra time blood and platelet donations had given their mum before she died earlier this year. Blood transfusions save lives and you’re more than able to spare a pint every 3 months!!
Find out when your next session is on the ScotBlood Website.
Edinburgh folk, you can expect me to drag you along when my three month wait is up on November 4th!!
