Today has been a special day for me. It was blood donor day. Yes I wandered round to the local rugby club to sit in a queue before they stick a needle in and swipe a pint(ish). But it’s a great way to be of service to our fellow man. I will never meet the folk who receive my blood, but they are out there somewhere, alive and well.

The staff are wonderful. I always have a good laugh whilst lying on the table. It’s no hardship to do it, and best of all, it gives me the perfect excuse to eat chocolate!

Do something wonderful, give blood, and be a blessing to others. You’ll be so glad you did.
