I’ve always wanted to give blood, always had the plan that I’d sign up as soon as I turned 18. I’m now nearly 20 and only just signed up.
My partner was having blood tests done and I saw the leaflet on the side and thought I definitely had to sign up this time. It was super easy to fill out, took me literally 2 minutes to do and I posted it straight away, but you can do it online too.
After recent events that have appeared on the news, that I’m sure we’ve all unfortunately seen, it made me realise that blood is something that is highly needed, especially as you don’t know what tomorrow may bring. So I decided that I definitely had to this time.
Have any of you ever signed up to give blood? What were your experiences? I’d love to know in the comments.
