Do something amazing

Post  andiweaves on Wed Mar 21, 2012 4:47 am

Hello peeps.
I was speaking to some of you a while ago about blood donation, and i thought to myself... well last year under the heading of Valleyveedubbers some members were in the paper for the amount of money raised for charity, lets see if we could continue that good hard work and do something else to benefit others.... why dont we as members give blood. Very Happy

Mike (even though he is scared of needles) and i are booked in at the King Charles Hotel this Thursday to give blood, and i thought we could get as many members as possible to give blood and have a running total of how many pints we have donated as a club.

I know it sounds rather random but if you or a loved one was taken to hospital (fingers crossed no one we know is) and they needed pints of blood to live, you would just expect the hospital to have it. Imagin how you would feel if you were told "i am sorry we have no blood stocks so we can not save your loved ones life!" Hospitals ONLY have blood stocks if people like you and me donate it. It costs nothing to give blood just your time. It takes about an hour in total to do and you can book apointments to donate after work, also most employers give you the time to donate. So come on peeps lets do something amazing and donate something for free. Oh and at the end of the donation you get a free drink tea coffee or squash and a free snack, crisps biscuit or something like that.

Come on book your appointments and lets get counting the pints.

Number to call is 0300 123 23 23

nice one Andi!
This is a brilliant idea!
I used to give blood all the time.... unfortunately because i have had a tattoo recently i cant give blood for a while... i keep meaning to find out what the duration is... i just googled it and its 4 months so i can give blood too! yay!
I will try and convince Sam to do it, she would love to but i think like Mikey, she is a little bit GAY!
I did not know they did it at the King Charles Hotel to be honest, i will aim to book there too!
wahoo!

Good for you guys, I did it a few years ago which i like to think I have either saved a life or banked it incase I need it or they are vampires.

I felt yuk for quite a few hours after so if you could give an extra pint for me that would be great! Very Happy

Really must start giving blood again.

I always used to give blood but had to stop after i broke my back due to having a series of operations.

Jamie, once you have given blood 2 or 3 times you will stop feeling 'yuk' afterwards, just make sure don't go on an empty stomach.
