Having recently been to my 7th blood donation session, I thought it would be a good chance to help spread the word about the importance of donating blood. I signed up to become a blood donor when I was in Sixth Form and have donated as regularly as I could since then. 
It is such a simple process to donate blood and it will make a difference every time you do it. Most people can give blood, however, less than 3% of the population actively give blood. Blood that is donated can save someone's life, for use in emergencies, and those needing long-term treatment.

Check out some of the stories of people who have benefited from blood donors. 
There are loads of places to donate blood and will take place at regular intervals in your local area, and takes hardly any time and effort from yourself to do it, yet it could make the world of difference to someone else. To find out more about donating, see the Blood Website.

Why not do something amazing, give blood and save a life!
