    I would love to donate some blood, unfortunately after receiving a blood transfusion during the birth of my eldest child I am now not allowed to donate (as it states in the Blood donor website). After 11 years I am still healthy so surely there is nothing wrong with my blood now. Somebody was kind enough to donate their and it saved my life, I would like to be able to repay the debt.

    mmmm. as a regular donor I have to book to get on a session. My nearest and usual donation centre is at their main building on London road. If your blood stocks are so low how come you can't fit me in till June!?!
