Next session in Barlick is Tuesday 3rd July. I have my slot booked for 14.45

If you want to donate, get yourself down to Rolls at the afternoon or evening sessions, more donors are always needed. You know it makes sense, do something amazing....

I have just cancelled my previously arranged appointment as I am no longer viable as a donor. My last session was the final one from me and I will no longer be eligible. I have given 30 odd armfuls over the years and was hoping to continue but that is not to be. I would still encourage all those who are eligible to donate. The service needs every donor it can get, only 4% of eligible donors regularly attend. Please, if you can, take my place and do something amazing.

You're in the same boat as me now Ian! Unclean! My mother never missed giving blood until old age prevented it. She always encouraged me to to do the same.

A big thank you to all donors. Saved my little girl in China recently. Interestingly she is B group, her mother is O, and I'm A (I'm not a blood relative) so we were a well mixed family! I presume her father would be B??

If the mother is group O and the child group B, the father is either group B or AB.

Been looking at my eligibility as a donor again and their is still a chance that I may be able to return to donating. Neurosurgery does not preclude you from donating as such depending on your recovery and being free of any post operative infection. :good: :smile:
